Abstract

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a highly prevalent disorder in Western society and closely linked with the production of two common symptoms—dysphagia and globus pharyngeus. The interrelationship of these symptoms with GERD and with each other is complex but critical to an understanding of patients’ complaints, underlying pathological mechanisms, and appropriate treatment planning. In this chapter, we explore these relationships, related diagnostic methodology, and options for treatment of reflux disorders, dysphagia and globus.
