It may be difficult for some reporters to get the facts straight when covering health-related topics, for example:
- "Eosinaphilic" esophagitis is spelled correctly as "eosinophilic," the source of the word is from the cells which cause the inflammation -- eosinophils
- "Pennsylvania Boy Infected With Rare Disease." Actually, eosinophilic esophagitis is not an infection, it is an allergic disorder characterized but eosinophilc inflammation.
This condition is well described in NEJM Images: Adult-Onset Eosinophilic Esophagitis.
