Ear, Nose, and Throat Problems Resulting from Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
An increasing number of children are being diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). GERD can cause a variety of ear, nose, and throat problems. Awareness of the role of GERD in these conditions is the key to successful treatment. At the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital, pediatric otolaryngologists work with pediatric gastroenterologists and pediatric surgeons to provide a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to managing GERD.
