Abstract

Case of an infant with chronic cough is reported. The most frequent causes of chronic cough were ruled out. Twenty-four hour oesophageal pH-monitoring showed a close correlation between gastro-oesophageal reflux episodes and cough attacks. The patient was successfully treated with cisapride (0.3 mg/kg t.i.d.). These findings show that irritable oesophagus syndrome can cause chronic cough.
