Neuronal Intestinal Dysplasia and its Relation to Other Motility Disorders
During infancy at least six intestinal motility syndromes are known to occur. These are: (1) aganglionosis (Hirschsprung’s disease); (2) meconium plug syndrome (also known as neonatal small left colon); (3) microcolon of prematurity; (4) CPAP belly syndrome (found in infants treated on a ventilator with continuous positive airways pressure); (5) megacystis microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis (neonatal hollow viscus myopathy); and, (6) neuronal intestinal dysplasia.
