I totally agree with Dr Krishan Pichumani.

Mesenteric adenitis, acute onset, mainly viral, treat symptomatically for 5 to 7 days. If pain persists, one can go for repeat USG and USG guided FNAC

DD Non specific Mesenteric adinitis, . DD TB mesenteric adinitis CT/US guided FNAC / biopsy of lymphnode and HPE ,may be needed if child does not settle down after antibiotics and metronidazole . All diseases are curable , but it is important to make the correct diagnosis. For that , data are needed . We are giving opinions with limited data. And so it will be only a general advice . Pediatrician who has examined the child and followed up the child is the best person to give opinion . Our prayers are for your child's quick recovery

Mesenteric adenitis, caused during viral fevers, tonsillitis. Treatment with a course of amoxyclav and dotaverin tab or syrup.

Lymph nodes less than 10 mm are non significant . No need to worry . Please do urine r/e n c/s .

Thank you doctor

USG showed multiple lymph nodes of which largest measures 9.8×5.8mm.Generally upto 8mm is considered as normal. However size marginally raised. Pt c/o abdominal pain & loss of appetite. Primarily it is of viral origin seen in gastroenteritis. If so it resolves in due time, only symptomatic treatment is required. If lymph nodes lasts then think of bacterial infection. Antibiotics is required & rule out Koch's abdomen. Anaemia also to be looked for. May be Vitamin B12, Folate or Iron deficiency.
