Abstract

Although, the relationship between asthma and gastroesophageal reflux has been known for years, diagnosis and treatment of asthma triggered gastroesophageal reflux is still controversial. The studies that aimed to evaluate the relation of asthma and reflux and results of antireflux treatment are insufficient to explain the topic. The aim of this review is to present the results of studies about asthma, reflux and efficacy of antireflux treatment.
