The article presents information on abstracts related to neurogastroenterology and nutrition. An abstract informs that functional GI disorders may follow bacterial gastroenteritis. It is not known whether post-infectious functional GI disorders are specific to GI infections. The primary aim of this study was to determine the frequency of IBS, functional dyspepsia or functional diarrhea at 3 and 6 months after a non-GI infection. This was a prospective, case-control study of people with non-gastrointestinal bacterial infection, gastroenteritis, and healthy controls.
