Background: Low vitamin D levels or deficiency has been associated with impaired pulmonary function,  recurrent respiratory infection and chronic cough in children. However, its role in the pathogenesis of chronic cough in adults has not been previously studied. Therefore, we investigated the associated between vitamin D and chronic cough in the adult population.Methods: Between 2006 and 2008, we measured serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels of 3914 participants in the Rotterdam Study, a prospective population-based cohort study. Subjects were categorised according to their serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels as follows: nor...

Aim: Esophageal atresia (EA) is the most common congenital anomaly of esophagus and associated with childhood respiratory morbidities. We aimed to evaluate the long-term respiratory problems of children with EA.Methods: Thirty-three children with EA were classified as patient group, 20 children with gastroesophageal-reflux-disease were classified as control group. Demographical findings, and clinical features as recurrent/chronic cough, recurrent pneumonia, history of hospitalization due to respiratory problems, history of aspiration pneumonia, diagnosis of asthma, presence of tracheomalacia were recorded.

AbstractPurposeGastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is commonly thought to play an important role in chronic cough and patients are often empirically treated with acid suppression therapy. We sought to investigate the response rate to acid suppression treatment in patients with and without heartburn attending two specialist cough clinics.MethodsA retrospective review of 558 consecutive patients referred to two specialist cough clinics was performed (UK and USA). Patients who were treated with acid suppression were included and their documented response to treatment was collected. Binary logistic regression was used to ...
