Objectives/Hypothesis: The primary objective of this study was to determine the relationship between chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). We also investigated the diagnostic value of pepsin in nasal lavage by means of fluorometric assay as compared with 24-hour dual-probe pH monitoring.
