Abstract/Description: Cough is one of the most common chief complaints presenting for medical evaluation. While the diagnoses of URI, postnasal drip, asthma, and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) are easily made and easily treated, there are many cases that remain difficult to diagnose and treat. This study highlights a difficult case of intractable cough, and its resolution. The objective of this study is to draw attention to the diagnosis of Sensory neuropathic cough and update the diagnostician with an expanded armamentarium of tools for treatment of the difficult cough patient. Sensory neuropathic cough (SNC) is a commonly overlooked diagnosis that can be successfully treated with Gabapentin class medications.
