Causes of Swallowing and Feeding Disorders

A careful reading of the medical, developmental, and feeding history is the first step that is critical to decision making. Swallowing and feeding disorders in infants and children are complex and can have multiple causes in various categories of disorders including, but are not limited to:

  • Disorders that affect hunger/appetite, food-seeking behavior, and ingestion
  • Anatomic abnormalities of the oropharynx
  • Anatomic/congenital abnormalities of the larynx and trachea
  • Anatomic abnormalities of the esophagus
  • Disorders affecting suck-swallow-breathing coordination
  • Disorders affecting neuromuscular coordination of swallowing
  • Disorders affecting esophageal peristalsis
  • Mucosal infections and inflammatory disorders causing dysphagia
  • Other miscellaneous disorders associated with feeding and swallowing difficulties, for example, xerostomia, hypothyroidism, trisomy 18 and 21, Prader-Willi syndrome, allergies, lipid and lipoprotein metabolism disorders, and a variety of craniofacial syndromes.
