Abstract

 Objective: We aimed to evaluate clinical features and follow-up data of CHILDREN with functional and secondary CONSTIPATION.Methods: Hospital records of 335 constipated CHILDREN were evaluated. CHILDREN were divided into 2 groups as functional and secondary, and were compared with regard to clinical and anthropometric data.Findings: Of 335 CHILDREN (M/F 167.168, mean age 4.3±3.5 years) 91% had functional CONSTIPATION (group 1). Family history of CONSTIPATION was significantly higher in group 1. Malnutrition was found in 18% of group 1, 56% in group 2 (p<0.001).Conclusion: If a constipated child has a family history of CONSTIPATION but does not have failure to thrive and CONSTIPATION begins at an older age, functional CONSTIPATION is more probable.
