Aim: Evaluation of the significance of different methods in the diagnosis of GERD in patients with chronić hoarseness. Material and methods: 28 patients (17-40 years) treated without improvement because of chronić hoarseness were examined. Besides laryngological and complete foniatric examination, oesophagogastroscopy with bio-psy and histopathological examination and 24-hour pH-metry were performed. Results: Acid reflux was observed in 86% of patients, and in 58% endoscopic changes were demonstrated.
