  • Cecal Volvulus

    As regards clinical examination, it demonstrated a distended tender abdomen with hyperactive bowel sounds. Laboratory works were within normal limits.[] Physical exam was significant for tenderness in the right lower quadrant with voluntary guarding.[] Abdomen Rebound Tenderness: in cases with peritonitis/bowel ischemia Nausea/Vomiting (see Nausea and Vomiting, [[Nausea and Vomiting]]) Obstipation : failure to pass stools[]

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    The bowel sounds may vary depending on whether the patient has constipation (bowel sounds may be hypoactive) or diarrhea (bowel sounds may be hyperactive).[] Table 1 Case reports of Blastocystis infection One 11 y.o male and one 12 y.o male Both presented with right lower quadrant tenderness, anorexia, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting[]

  • Small Bowel Obstruction

    On the other hand, if very hyperactive bowel sounds are heard they are indicative of mechanical obstruction.[] Signs Vital Sign s: Dehydration vs SIRS Criteria ( Sepsis ) Sinus Tachycardia Hypotension Bowel sounds Initial: High pitched, hyperactive bowel sounds Later: Hypoactive or[] But 48 hours later, (96 hours postpartum), abdominal distension, visible peristaltic waves and hyperactive bowel sounds re-appeared.[]

  • Intestinal Tuberculosis

    SIGNS Abdominal tenderness is the most frequent sign, affecting 67 per cent of patients and is usually in the right lower quadrant.[] There was increased pain upon palpation on the right lower quadrant of the abdomen, where a lengthened mass-like formation was appreciated.[] There is muscle guarding and rebound tenderness if peritonitis is present.[]

  • Viral Gastroenteritis

    Abstract Molecular methods such as real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) are rapidly replacing traditional tests to detect fecal viral pathogens in childhood diarrhea. This technique has now increased the analytical sensitivity so drastically that positive results are found in asymptomatic children, leading to[…][]

  • Intestinal Obstruction

    OBJECTIVES: Small bowel volvulus is a rare disease, which is also challenging to diagnose. The aims of this study were to characterize the clinical and radiological features associated with small bowel volvulus and treatment and to identify risk factors for associated small bowel necrosis. METHODS: Patients with small[…][]

  • Salmonella Infection

    J Pediatr Surg. 2008 May;43(5):E35-8. doi: 10.1016/j.jpedsurg.2008.01.066. Abstract Splenic abscess as a presentation of a Salmonella infection is described in children and adults. A combination of antibiotics and splenectomy is the standard treatment. We report a 12-year-old girl admitted to the hospital with fever,[…][]

  • Abdominal Visceral Abscess

    Abdominal examination revealed hyperactive bowel sounds and tenderness in the epigastrium & RUQ. Liver span was 14 cm. The rest of the examination was unremarkable.[] Perforated peptic ulcer: this usually produces upper quadrant pain but pain may be lower.[] With the patient adequately undressed and comfortable, systematically examine the abdomen - inspection, percussion (the abdomen may be tympanitic in bowel obstruction), palpation[]

  • Appendicitis

    Migratory pain, nausea or vomiting, and right lower quadrant tenderness were common predictors to all rules. Methodological quality varied widely.[] Physical examination revealed an abdominal tenderness in the right lower quadrant without rebound tenderness or muscular tension.[] On physical examination, she is afebrile, with tenderness on deep palpation in the right lower quadrant, and has no peritoneal signs.[]
