Abstract

Knowledge of molecular mechanisms that underlie development of the enteric nervous system has greatly expanded in recent decades. Enteric neuropathies related to aberrant genetic development are thus becoming increasingly recognized. There has been no recent review of these often highly morbid disorders. This review highlights advances in knowledge of the molecular pathogenesis of these disorders from a clinical perspective. It includes diseases characterized by an infantile aganglionic Hirschsprung phenotype and those in which structural abnormalities are less pronounced. The implications for diagnosis, screening and possible reparative approaches are presented
