Abstract

Intestinal pseudo-obstruction is a syndrome of many causes. Attempts must be made to determine the cause and the extent of the involvement of the gastrointestinal tract in each patient, because they will dictate the method of treatment for that patient. Family history must be taken from all primary chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction patients. If it is positive, genetic counseling and proper medical management can be given to newly identified cases in the family.
