Every new empiric observation made over two millenia fueled the dispute as to whether hiccup (Hc) is a digestive or a respiratory reflex. A review of the literature, focusing attention on the probable mechanism of Hc, shows Hc as a neurogenic dysfunction of the 'valve function' between the inspiratory complex and the glottis closure complex.
