So what is autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility? This is a limited form of dysautonomia with prominent gastrointestinal symptoms. In this disorder the enteric nervous system is targeted by the immune system. These disorders are mediated by neural specific IgG antibodies or by effector T cells. These disorders may occur on an idiopathic basis or in some cases may occur associated with a systemic cancer, which is also known as a paraneoplastic disorder.
