This chapter examines the diagnosis and management of chronic cough in patients with a ‘normal’ chest radiograph. It discusses some of the most common causes of chronic cough, including angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) medications, cigarette smoking, postnasal drip syndrome (PNDS), asthma, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The chapter also highlights the most common pitfalls of chronic cough management, which include prescription of non-specific antitussive therapy without attempting to make specific diagnoses and failure to consider other common causes of cough when one diagnosis is seemingly obvious.

Keywords:   chronic cough, diagnosis, disease management, chest radiograph, ACEI medications, cigarette smoking, PNDS, asthma, GERD
