Abstract

In recent years, there has been increasing recognition of the presence of gastrointestinal (GI) dysfunction in the setting of neurologic diseases. Parkinson's disease is a particularly well-known example, but GI dysfunction also may occur in multiple sclerosis, stroke, and in various myopathic and peripheral neuropathic processes. There is much less awareness, however, that primary GI diseases may also display neurologic dysfunction as part of their clinical picture. This article focuses on some of those disease processes. Illnesses primarily targeting the GI tract are addressed and examples of primary esophageal, gastric, and intestinal disease processes are described.
