Misdiagnosis of Hidden Causes of Pediatric gastroesophageal reflux disease

Underlying conditions list:

The list of possible underlying conditions mentioned in various sources for Pediatric gastroesophageal reflux disease includes:

  • Increased intraabdominal pressure, felt to result in reflux only when the LES is relaxed, at least momentarily
  • Failure to link increased LES pressure with gastric contractions, which can result in reflux while fasting
  • Increased gastric volume, which is aggravated by delayed gastric emptying
  • Lack of coordination between gastric peristalsis and opening of the pylorus, which results in delayed gastric emptying
  • Increased tension of the gastric wall/gastric distention
