Infant reflux becomes evident in the first few months of life, peaks at 4 months and resolves in up to 88% by 12 months and in nearly all by 24 months. Infantile reflux manifests more often with regurgitation, signs of esophagitis and resulting failure to thrive. We report the case of two months old male child with GERD with non-resolving pneumonia only relieved after surgical intervention.
