Abdominal pain is a common problem in children of all ages. There are many possible causes – in fact, there are too many to list in a book such as this on basic care of sick children. Many of these problems go away without any specific medical attention. Parents and carers are therefore most interested in knowing about the more seriouscauses of abdominal pain, such as appendicitis and other problems that might require medical assessment and, possibly, surgery.
