Faecal compaction and Over-spill Syndrome

Faecal compaction and over-spill syndrome is a common condition found among children with neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism. It exists in children where old stool is compacted and adheres to the walls of the digestive tract where it may stay for many months providing an environment where parasites, harmful bacteria, fungi and viruses may breed and thrive, producing toxic substances which may pass into the bloodstream. New food, meanwhile, passes through a narrow channel in this stool and passes as over-spill, failing to empty the bowel.
