When the going gets tough: pediatric constipation and encopresis.
Gastroenterol Nurs 2008 Mar-Apr; 31(2):121-30GN

Abstract

Constipation and encopresis are two common conditions seen in the pediatric gastroenterology setting. Organic causes cannot be excluded although they are rarely diagnosed in infants and children with defecation disorders. To successfully treat these disorders, a combination of family education, disimpaction and maintenance medications, a well-balanced diet, and behavior management is essential.
