Methods: 112 patients were studied and followed for a period of at least six months. The study was under the following headings: (1) establish the diagnosis of LPR by using Reflux, (2) establish diagnosis of GERD, (3) treatment OF LPR Results: Majority of patients were females (53.3%) and in the age group of 20-50 years. RSI was used to study symptoms. Common symptoms were clearing of throat (97.1%), lump in throat (96.2%), excess throat mucus (93.3%). The signs of LPR were studied by using RFS. Common findings were vocal cord edema (97.1%) and erythema (93.3%). Symptoms of GERD were present in less than half of patients (47.6%). EGD found to be normal (64.8%). Most common finding on EGD was esophagitis (17.1%), gastritis (14.3%) and hiatus hernia (8.6%). Majority of patients responded to medical management (96.2%). RSI improved from a mean score of 17.6% at initiation of treatment to 3.9 at 6 months follow up. RFS improved from a mean score of 11.9 at pre-treatment to (1.7) at 6 months follow up. Conclusion: LPR is common and RFS and RSI were used to evaluate LPR, They were reproducible and effective. GERD was present in less than half of the patients.
