Neurologic causes of dysphagia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Pharyngeal dysphagia may be caused by any of a wide variety of neurologic diseases, but the possibility of neurologic disease is often overlooked in the evaluation of dysphagia. This is especially unfortunate because some of the neurologic causes of dysphagia are treatable. This review organizes the neurologic causes of dysphagia into a simple framework that facilitates consideration of these diseases. Methods of evaluating neurogenic dysphagia, including history taking, physical examination, and laboratory testing, are to be considered separately in a subsequent article.
