The majority of children with constipation respond well to conservative treatment, including dietary interventions, behavioural therapy and laxatives. A subgroup is not responsive to conventional therapy and continues having complaints of constipation beyond puberty. These patients are a difficult and challenging group for healthcare professionals and require further investigation. Suzanne Mugie sheds new light on the pathophysiology of severe childhood constipation, the use of different diagnostic tests and potential novel therapeutic options.
