PMID:  1392393     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Hoarseness is not generally appreciated to be a manifestation of pediatric gastroesophageal reflux. We describe a case in which treatment of well-documented gastroesophageal reflux and esophagitis in a young girl with hoarseness and nocturnal cough led to resolution of these symptoms. Possible pathogenetic mechanisms and the difficulty in associating hoarseness with reflux by standard reflux testing are discussed.
