From January 1st, 1983 to March 31st, 1988, 66 children with GER were tested with barium esophagogram, esophageal pH monitoring and esophagoscopy. A medical therapy was given to 49 children and 46 had a clinical improvement; 13 were operated. Early diagnosis is very important to prevent complications: in fact our data show that older children have the worst complications, while infants with GER and severe esophageal pH monitoring have only I-II grade esophagitis.
