Extraesophageal Reflux Disease represents a group of syndromes in which patients present 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 has compiled commentaries by experts in each of the fields of gastroenterology, allergy, otolaryngology, surgery and pulmonology in order to best understand the current clinical challenges in this field and to help all subspecialties which interact with this group of patients. It will outline 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.
