dc.description.abstract Otolaryngologists are just now beginning to recognize the role reflux has in otolaryngologic disease. Laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPR) is a sub-class of Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which is defined as symptoms and/or signs of esophageal or adjacent organ injury, secondary to the reflux of gastric contents into the esophagus or beyond into the oral cavity or airways. LPR is classified based on organ damage extending up into the larynx and voice box. Because singers place great demands on their voice, they are particularly sensitive to even the slightest change in caused by peptic mucositis in the larynx. This poster presentation discusses exacerbating factors, extra-esophageal symptoms, pathophysiology, treatment and management of LPR for singers. en
