Neurologic evaluation of dysphagia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Unexplained dysphagia is often caused by unrecognized neurologic disease. A previous article (Buchholz 1987) discussed the many neurologic diseases that may cause dysphagia. This article reviews a neurologist's approach to dysphagia of possible neurologic origin. As with most medical problems, a careful history provides more information about dysphagia than any other data-gathering technique. Therefore, history-taking is discussed first, followed by review of pertinent aspects of the general and neurologic examinations and ancillary testing.
