Many systemic disorders can have gastrointestinal manifestations. This chapter is an overview of these diseases as they affect the gastrointestinal tract and liver, with emphasis on disorders not considered elsewhere in this book. Gastrointestinal symptoms that can point to systemic disease are rapid weight loss or gain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, jaundice, and abnormal results of liver function tests. Various gastrointestinal symptoms can be signs of dermatologic, immunologic, cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal, endocrine, hematologic, oncologic, neuromuscular, and rheumatologic disease. Pregnancy and gynecologic conditions may also have gastroenterologic manifestations.
