However, for those children who suffer with bowel dysfunction, the pain, shame, and despair associated with incontinence and painful defecation may have ramifications for a lifetime. Surprisingly, many health careproviders are not well-informed about how to deal with childhood constipation. Little information is readily available to doctors and nurses confronted with this often perplexing problem. This book presents the scientific background, physiology, and clinical features of children who present withproblems of defecation. It also contains a booklet designed to be copied and distributed to parents and children to help them understand this distressing condition. The book is designed to be an easily accessible source of information for practitioners and students of pediatrics, child psychiatry,and gastroenterology, as well as family physicians.
