Children with Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome may present with a variety of otorhinologic symptoms including recurrent otitis media, rhinosinusitis and sleep disordered breathing. These children also have symptoms associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease. The purpose of this case report is to highlight the case of a child with Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome who presented aerodigestive tract symptoms refractory to acid suppression treatment and was eventually diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis as a causative factor.
