Abstract: Over the past decades our knowledge of normal and abnormal gastrointestinal motility has increased tremendously. The availability of manometry to study bowel contraction patterns, laparoscopy to perform full thickness bowel biopsies for histological examination, have added to the investigative armamentarium and helped better diagnose motility disorders. However, the development of newer therapies for bowel motility disorders has been disappointingly slow. Newer modalities such as gastric and bowel pacing provides some hope for the future. In this article we have provided an overview of some of the common motility disorders in children and discussed their management.
