Extraesophageal reflux disease represents a group of syndromes in which patients resent with symptoms not typical for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), such as: cough, asthma, laryngitis, globus, dysphagia and even sinusitis and possibly otitis.

This unique book presents best evidence and practices from experts in the fields of gastroenterology, allergy, otolaryngology, surgery and pulmonology to best understand the current clinical challenges in this field and to help all subspecialties that interact with this group of patients. It outlines diagnostic and management strategies for each of the above symptoms so that we call all better care for this group of difficult to diagnose patients.
