Hi doctor,

My son is 11 years old. His sonography impression shows the presence of sub-centric, nonnecrotic, pre and para-aortic mesenteric lymph nodes. He suffers from stomach pain and also has blood in stools. Currently, he is taking Mebex and Monocef. His WBC level is above the normal. Please advice.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Mesenteric lymph node enlargement can be seen in children without a cause, and it is called as primary mesenteric lymphadenitis. In secondary causes, infections like tuberculosis or enteric fever or viral fever can also cause it. Blood in the stool can also occur due to infectious colitis or ileitis or intussusception. Do stool examination, endoscopy, montaux test, and chest X-ray. Consult a pediatrician soon after doing these tests. The doctor will examine the condition and will treat it accordingly.
