Hello and welcome. I think you want to say Hirschsprung?s disease? Or is it Asperger?s syndrome? In Hirschsprung?s disease there is fecal impaction, constipation and blockage .It occurs due to abscence of ganglionic cells in the intestine. It can be diagnosed By barium enema, manometry or biopsy. If you are talking about Asperger?s syndrome then here is the description.Asperger syndrome is one of the autism spectrum disorders, and is classified as a developmental disorder that affects how the brain processes information. People with Asperger syndrome have a wide range of strengths, weaknesses, skills and difficulties. They have difficulty in forming friendships, communication and an inability to understand social rules and body language. Do write to us again. Good luck.

It's a disease that involves the nerve endings inside the colon. If a section of the colon has defective nerve endings blockages can occur. If severe enough, it can be life threatening. It is important to see a gastroenterology who has experience with this disease.
