Multiple disorders may present with vomiting in older infants in children. By far the most common is gastroenteritis. However, GERD, mechanical obstruction, Munchausen syndrome by proxy, intracranial masses, peptic ulcer disease, and cyclic vomiting also may be diagnostic considerations.
Prolonged vomiting (>12 hours in a neonate, >24 hours in children younger than two years of age, or >48 hours in older children) should not be ignored. Screening laboratories should include a complete blood count, electrolytes, blood urea nitrogen, urinalysis, urine culture, and stool studies for occult blood, leukocytes, and parasites. Additional testing should be based upon the history and physical examination.
Patients should be referred to a pediatric gastroenterologist or other appropriate specialist (eg, pediatric surgeon, neurologist) when there are symptoms or physical findings that are of particular concern. These include an abnormal neurologic exam, peritoneal signs on abdominal examination, severe abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding, or significant weight loss. Immediate pediatric surgical consultation is warranted if appendicitis, bowel obstruction, or bowel perforation are suspected.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
