Introduction: Non cystic - fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFBE) is a chronic heterogenous disease, with variety of predisposing factors and disease mechanism implicated in its pathogenesis. As a consequence the pathophysiologic processes are still not well defined.

Increasing knowledge and awareness about the disease and improved diagnostic possibilities ( CT or MRI) increase the reported prevalence. Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) causes a wide spectrum of non-oesophageal conditions including asthma, pneumonia, pulmonary fibrosis, chronic cough, hoarseness, posterior laryngitis, and even dental erosions. GERD is also one of etiological factors NCFBE. We are focusing in our study on the aspect of GERD.
