Vomiting (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Vomiting (throwing up) happens when very strong stomach contractions force a large part of the stomach contents back up the swallowing tube (esophagus) and out through the mouth or nose. It is usually caused by a minor illness. Vomiting is not the same as regurgitation. Regurgitation is the effortless spitting up of a small amount of food or liquid. Food goes up the swallowing tube and into the mouth. Regurgitation is very common in babies. It is not harmful. Audio available. (English)

Recurrent Abdominal Pain (Child) [English] Permalink Public

A stomach ache or bellyache is called abdominal pain. If a child has abdominal pain that comes and goes regularly, they have recurrent abdominal pain (RAP). Recurrent abdominal pain can be caused by a number of different illnesses or there may not be any underlying problem at all. If the child is seen by a doctor, and all medical causes are ruled out, then the child is said to have "functional abdominal pain". This means that there is no known cause for the pain. (English)

Pyloric Stenosis (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Pyloric stenosis (say: pie-LOR-ick stuh-NO-sis) occurs when the opening from the stomach to the intestine is blocked. This opening is called the pylorus (say: pie-LOR-us). There is a muscle around this opening. Normally, this muscle keeps food in the stomach when it tightens. It lets food out of the stomach into the intestines when it relaxes. Boys have pyloric stenosis more often than girls. (English)
