Diseases of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract may involve a myraid of organ systems including the luminal gut, the liver, biliary tract, and pancreas. A basic understanding of GI illnesses and their presenting signs and symptoms is essential for the primary care physician. This chapter is not meant to be all-inclusive; rather, it should serve as a guide to help formulate differential diagnoses, to initiate an evaluation, and to institute a preliminary treatment plan in a psychiatric setting.
