Neurointestinal diseases comprise a group of conditions that affect the gastrointestinal tract and are due to abnormalities in the nerves that supply the intestine. Those nerves are essential for the intestine to function normally. When the nerves are absent due to a congenital abnormality, or when they are damaged due to inflammation, infection, or neuronal degeneration, serious gastrointestinal diseases can occur.
