During COVID 19 pandemic patients typically present with respiratory symptoms. However, in a significant number of patients the gastrointestinal tract is also involved in the disease. Up to 20 % of patients suffering from gastrointestinal symptoms. New insights in pathophysiological aspects might open new therapeutic concepts. This up-date includes current data regarding epidemiology of gastrointestinal symptoms in COVID 19, its role for prognosis and specific risks in relation to immunosuppressive therapies and underlying diseases.

COVID 19, caused by SARS-CoV2, a new variant of coronaviruses, typically presents with respiratory symptoms. However, in a significat number of patients different organs are involved in the disease, often including gastrointestinal symptoms. These could include loss of appetite, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea, with diarrhea being associated with a more severe course of COVID-19. Because viral RNA can be detected in fecal samples, some implications for clinical routine in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are grown. Until yet, no clear evidence is given regarding fecal-oral transmission of SARS-CoV2.
