Constipation is a very common complaint and functional causes correspond to the majority of etiologies. Inherent to its high prevalence and relevant differential diagnoses such as colon cancer, investigation should be careful and often includes laboratory, imaging and manometric tests, among others. The management of complaints goes through dietary and behavioral orientation for the use of medications such as bulk forming agents, lubricants, laxatives and osmotic agents, biofeedback sessions and in selected cases to surgery. In this brief review we will give additional emphasis on clinical and non-surgical management of this pathology.
