Abdominal Pain in Children Prognosis
The prognosis for abdominal pain in children is as diverse as the causes themselves. Abdominal pain left identified and treated early carries a good prognosis overall; however, pain undiagnosed and untreated can be life-threatening. Consequently, early in the child's illness, a parent or caregiver should work with the pediatrician and hospital to ensure the child receives appropriate care.
