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.

The goal of this review is to summarize the current understanding of the primary gastrointestinal motility disorders in childhood and their management.
