Esophageal Dysphagia in Children

Esophageal dysphagia is the sensation of food or liquid sticking within the esophagus after your child has started to swallow. It can have a number of underlying causes, including esophageal strictures, achalasia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, eosinophilic esophagitis and ingestion of foreign objects.
