Background Chronic constipation in children can be caused by cows' milk intolerance (CMI), but its pathogenesis is unknown. Aims To evaluate the histology and manometry pattern in patients with food intolerance-related constipation. Patients and methods Thirty-six consecutive children with chronic constipation were enrolled. All underwent an elimination diet and successive double-blind food challenge. All underwent rectal biopsy and anorectal manometry. Results A total of 14 patients were found… Expand
Constipation and Cow's Milk Allergy: A Review of the Literature
TLDR
It is believed that a CM-free diet for 2-4 weeks should be proposed for children with chronic functional constipation, even if it is not severe or resistant to laxatives. Expand
Neuroimmune Interaction and Anorectal Motility in Children With Food Allergy-Related Chronic Constipation
TLDR
In children with food allergy-related chronic constipation, an increase in both rectal MC density and spatial interactions between MCs and NFs correlates with anal motor abnormalities. Expand

TLDR
The presence of LNH in the colon and/or terminal ileum is a frequent finding in symptomatic children undergoing colonoscopy and unless associated with other specific endoscopic or histologic lesions, LNH is related to a condition of delayed-type food hypersensitivity. Expand
Allergy in Children with Functional Constipation and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
Food allergy in children with chronic constipation should be identified using an oral food challenge after being on a diet free of cow’s milk, and a diet low in FODMAPs might also be recommended for children with IBS. Expand
Cow's-Milk–free Diet as a Therapeutic Option in Childhood Chronic Constipation
TLDR
A clear association between CM consumption and constipation has been found in more than one third of children, however, analytical parameters do not demonstrate an immunoglobulin E-mediated immunologic mechanism. Expand
Effect of Cow's-milk–free diet on chronic constipation in children; A randomized clinical trial
TLDR
It was showed that children with functional constipation with no response to laxatives could benefit from a cow’s milk-free and dairy-free diet. Expand
Anorectal manometric profile in patients presenting with chronic constipation associated with a mobile cecum
TLDR
There was a relation among these findings and the potential decrease in transportation of the inhibitory neurotransmitters produced as consequence of the mobile cecum leading to a chronic constipation. Expand
‘Rapid transit’ constipation in children: a possible genesis for irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
It is hypothesized that positive breath tests and improvement of pain and bowel frequency with sugar exclusion diets in RTC suggest these children have IBS-C, and the possibility that many children with CIC could be treated by reducing fructose early in their diet and this might prevent the development of IBS in later life.

Chapter 5-Constipation: A Symptom of Chronic Food Intolerance?
Constipation is characterized by a recurrent difficulty to defecate, the sensation of incomplete evacuation, and/or infrequent bowel motions (once every 3–4 days or less) in the absence of secondaryExpand
Fibre fortification to increase stool frequency in children with a history of constipation
TLDR
There was a trend towards an increase in the mean number of daily bowel movements in the fibre treatment group compared to the placebo group over the final two weeks, and there were no significant differences in the intake of the snacks or supplement when the placebo and treatment groups were compared.

Chronic constipation and food intolerance: A model of proctitis causing constipation
TLDR
Food intolerance-related constipation is characterized by proctitis with eosinophil infiltrate of the rectal mucosa, and a reduced mucus gel layer can be considered a contributory factor in the pathogenesis of the constipation. Expand
Chronic constipation as a symptom of cow milk allergy.
TLDR
It is concluded that constipation in infants with chronic "idiopathic" constipation may have an allergic pathogenesis. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that CMP allergy or intolerance should be considered as a cause of chronic refractory constipation in children, although the underlying mechanism still require further investigation. Expand
Constipation in children.
TLDR
Anorectal manometric studies have been performed in normal infants and children and in children with significant constipation, and there appears to be a proportionate relationship between the volume of rectal distention and the amplitude of relaxation and contraction of the anal sphincteric components.

Gastroesophageal reflux associated with cow's milk allergy in infants: which diagnostic examinations are useful?
TLDR
Evidence of a characteristic pattern of the pH-monitoring tracing and of a high IgG anti-beta-lactoglobulin value are specific and sensitive tests for GER + CMPA diagnosis are concluded. Expand
Vomiting and Gastric Motility in Infants With Cow's Milk Allergy
TLDR
In sensitized infants, cow's milk induces severe gastric dysrhythmia and delayed gastric emptying, which in turn may exacerbate gastroesophageal reflux and induce reflex vomiting. Expand
Food elimination based on IgG antibodies in irritable bowel syndrome: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Food elimination based on IgG antibodies may be effective in reducing IBS symptoms and is worthy of further biomedical research. Expand
Are chronic digestive complaints the result of abnormal dietary patterns? Diet and digestive complaints in children at 22 and 40 months of age.
TLDR
Excessive fluid intake may provoke symptoms suggesting the irritable bowel syndrome in a susceptible group of younger children, and failure to increase fiber intake from 22 to 40 months of age leaves children on an immature diet whose effects require further study. Expand
Mucin depletion in inflammatory bowel disease.
TLDR
The results suggest that it is worth while assessing the mucin content of rectal biopsy specimens from patients with inflammatory bowel disease to consider the gland content, which can be made by eye using a suitably stained section. Expand
