Food allergy – gastro-esophageal refl ux disease association in infants
Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) and cow’s milk allergy (CMA) are two different diseases with many common clinical and evolutive features. The authors analyze a lot of 110 infants hospitalized for the clinical suspicion of GERD (45 cases) or CMA (65 cases). The results emphasize the risk of the concomitant evolution of CMA and GER.
Conclusions: Distal esophageal pH- metry must be performed both in GERD and CMA, especially in patients with atopic risks or manifestations.
