BOTTO, Hugo et al. Severe laryngitis associated to gastroesophageal reflux. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2014, vol.112, n.1, pp.78-82. ISSN 0325-0075.

There is a strong association between gastroesophageal reflux and pharyngolaryngeal reflux as factors leading to respiratory disease, manifested as dysphonia, wheezing, coughing, recurrent laryngitis, bronchial obstruction, laryngospasm and apparent life-threatening events (ALTEs). These manifestations can be mild or severe and may sometimes put the patient's life at risk. We present two cases of patients with severe laryngitis who required endotracheal intubation, one of which underwent tracheostomy. The diagnostic methods and their limitations and the patients outcomes are described.

Keywords : Gastroesophageal reflux; Laryngopha-ryngeal reflux; Laryngitis; Laryngoscopy; Infantile apparent life-threatening event.
