CONCLUSION: Acid gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and/or histological oesophagitis were diagnosed in 66% and 43% of irritable infants, respectively. There was no relation between symptoms and abnormal pH metry or oesophagitis; however, the reflux index does not accurately predict oesophagitis and normal histology does not accurately exclude acid gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. Oesophageal pH monitoring and endoscopy provide additional information.
