Due to lack of response to l-dopa attributable to gastrointestinal (GI) motility impairment, apomorphine treatment was started, and the adynamic bowel syndrome dramatically improved. The use of apomorphine in Parkinson's disease patients with acute GI motility disorders is recommended. © Williams & Wilkins 1994. All Rights Reserved.
