Pediatric gastrointestinal motility disorders are a heterogeneous group of conditions that can be particularly difficult to recognize and manage. Symptoms are typically chronic and have a significant impact on quality of life. Medical therapies are limited and definitive treatment often requires surgical intervention that can alleviate certain symptoms, but predispose the patients to other comorbidities. The goal of this review is to summarize the current understanding of the primary gastrointestinal motility disorders in childhood and their management.
