Abstract/Notes OBJECTIVE: To present the diagnosis and management of gastroesophageal reflux disease found in a pediatric patient, to discuss the importance of a detailed case history, and to bring forward some of the most important clues, both verbal and nonverbal, that can lead to the diagnosis.

CLINICAL FEATURES: An 8-year-old boy was brought to a chiropractic clinic by his mother complaining of headache and neck pain. Based on the history and physical examination, a diagnosis of cervicogenic headache was made.

INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: Treatment consisted of chiropractic manipulation of the upper cervical spine in combination with cranial treatment was applied in addition to dietary advice. The headache returned and the patient was then referred to a colleague for a second opinion. Based on a detailed history, gastroesophageal reflux disease was diagnosed and the patient was referred to a specialist for suitable treatment.
