Medical terms related to Intestinal blockage or mentioned in this section include:

  • Abdominal pain: Pain in the abdominal area or stomach.
  • Abdominal symptoms: Symptoms affecting the abdomen or digestive tract
  • Aganglionosis, total intestinal: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. This form of Hirschsprung disease is differentiated from the other types by the location of the genetic defect.
  • Al Gazali Hirschsprung syndrome: A rare disorder characterized by Hirschsprung disease (an intestinal disorder), nail abnormalities and facial anomalies.
  • Ascariasis: Large intestinal roundworm from 6 to 13 inches.
  • Bowel problems: Symptoms affecting the bowel
  • Colonic volvulus: Twisting of the colon.
  • Constipation: Hardness of stool or difficulty or inability to pass feces.
  • Crohn's disease: Crohn's disease causes inflammation of the digestive system. It is one of a group of diseases called inflammatory bowel disease. The disease can affect any area from the mouth to the anus. It often affects the lower part of the small intestine called the ileum.
  • Digestive symptoms: Any symptoms affecting the digestive tract.
  • Diverticular Disease: Protrusions of the colon wall (diverticulosis) or their inflammation (diverticulitis)
  • Diverticular disease and diverticulitis:
  • Hirschsprung disease ganglioneuroblastoma: A rare disorder characterized by an intestinal defect tumors of the nerves.
  • Hirschsprung disease type 2: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. This form of Hirschsprung disease is differentiated from the other types by the location of the genetic defect.
  • Hirschsprung disease type 3: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. This form of Hirschsprung disease is differentiated from the other types by the location of the genetic defect.
  • Hirschsprung disease type D brachydactyly: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. This form of Hirschsprung disease also involves finger and toe abnormalities.
  • Hirschsprung disease, short-segment, type 2: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. This form of Hirschsprung disease involves a shorter segment of the intestines and is differentiated from the other types by the location of the genetic defect.
  • Hirschsprung disease, short-segment, type 3: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. This form of Hirschsprung disease involves a shorter segment of the intestines and is differentiated from the other types by the location of the genetic defect.
  • Hirschsprung disease, susceptibility to, 4: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. Type 4 is linked to a defect on chromosome 120q13.2-q13.3.
  • Hirschsprung disease, susceptibility to, 5: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. Type 5 is linked to a defect in the RET gene on chromosome 21q22.
  • Hirschsprung disease, susceptibility to, 6: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. Type 6 is linked to a defect on chromosome 3p21.
  • Hirschsprung disease, susceptibility to, 7: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. Type 7 is linked to a defect on chromosome 19q12.
  • Hirschsprung disease, susceptibility to, 8: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. Type 8 is linked to a defect on chromosome 9q31.
  • Hirschsprung disease, susceptibility to, 9: A developmental defect of the intestinal tract where the muscles of the intestines are unable to function and move food along the digestive tract. Type 1 is linked to a defect on chromosome 4q31.3-q32.3.
  • Ileitis: Inflammation of the lower end of the small intestine
  • Imperforate anus: A congenital disorder where the anus is missing or located in the wrong position.
  • Inguinal hernia: Protrusion of the intestines out of the groin area.
  • Intestinal Conditions: Conditions that affect the intestines
  • Intestinal obstruction: Any obstruction that occurs in the gastrointestinal system
  • Intussusception: intussusception is the sliding of one part of the intestine into another
  • Lower abdominal symptoms: Symptoms affecting the lower abdominal region.
  • Lymphoma: Any neoplastic disorder that occurs in lymphoid tissue
  • Meckel's diverticulum: A Meckel's diverticulum is a pouch on the wall of the lower part of the small bowel that is present at birth (congenital). The diverticulum may contain tissue from the stomach or pancreas.
  • Meconium plug syndrome: A condition that can occur in newborns where a mass of thickened meconium obstructs the large intestines. The condition may occur as a result of other disorders such as cystic fibrosis, colon atresia, narrowed colon, impaired intestinal motility (Hirschsprung disease) or for no apparent reason. Often, bowel function returns to normal once the meconium plug is passed from the body.
  • Melanoma: Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. It is the leading cause of death from skin disease. It involves cells called melanocytes, which produce a skin pigment called melanin. Melanin is responsible for skin and hair color.
  • Nerve symptoms: Symptoms affecting the nerves
  • Stomach pain: The occurrence of pain located in the stomach
  • Stool symptoms: Changes to stool such as diarrhea
  • Waardenburg syndrome, type 4: A rare inherited eye disorder characterized by loss of central vision as well as symptoms of Hirschsprung disease which is an intestinal disorder that prevents waste material from moving effectively through the digestive system.
