Abstract

In patients with laryngopharygeal reflux (LPR), gastric contents exhibit retrograde flow into the upper aero-digestive tract, causing extraesophageal symptoms including chronic cough, hoarseness, indigestion, difficulty swallowing, globus pharyngis, and asthma. The following on laryngopharyngeal reflux includes commentaries on the use of patient-completed questionaires and anti-human pepsin antibodies and other non-invasive tests in diagnosis; the role of pepsin and acid in the etiologies of laryngeal cancers; and the application of proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy for the treatment of LPR.
