In a sample of 137 children (ages 24-96 months) classified as having autism, 24% had a history of at least one chronic gastrointestinal symptom. The most common symptom was diarrhea, which occurred in 17%. There was no association between chronic gastrointestinal symptoms and a history of developmental regression. (Contains references.)
