Nonerosive reflux disease is defined as the presence of typical symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease caused by intraesophageal acid in the absence of visible esophageal mucosal injury at endoscopy. Recent studies demonstrate that it is a chronic disease with a significant impact on quality of life, and it is very common in primary care settings. Treatment with acid inhibitory agents is effective, and proton pump inhibitors are the most effective form of therapy.
