Abstract

Constipation and faecal incontinence are not so uncommon in patients with multiple sclerosis, impairing quality of life. The gut microbiota is altered in multiple sclerosis patients and likely contributes to disease pathogenesis. Trans-anal irrigation has been proven to allow treatment of neurogenic bowel dysfunction and may affect gut microbiota.
