Laryngopharyngeal reflux is a prevalent, yet incompletely understood, ENT disorder accounting for 8 to 10% of patients consulting ENT. This clinical entity, increasingly considered as different from gastroesophageal reflux disease, may greatly affect the quality of life of patients through vocal and digestive symptoms. Debate persists concerning pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment. The aim of this review is to study the current literature about the pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and the outcomes in the follow-up.
