Abstract

A constellation of otolaryngologic signs and symptoms has been suggested to identify the association between extraesophageal reflux disease (EERD) and pediatric otolaryngologic disorders. We describe chronic nasal pain as a manifestation of laryngopharyngeal acid reflux in a 4-year-old boy who presented with frequent night awakenings due to severe nasal pain. His presentation, relevant history physical examination, diagnostic studies, and response to therapy are described. This is the first report documenting nasal pain resolved with acid suppressive therapy in a child with EERD. The incidence and pathogenesis of EERD induced nasal symptoms in children merits further investigation.
