Abstract

Introduction: Complications of chronic abdominal pain occur in 9 to 15% of children. A study of children and adolescents with chronic abdominal pain requires knowledge of possible mechanisms of pain, differential diagnosis of abdominal pain and common patterns of pain and clinical manifestations. The purpose of this study was to diagnose the signs and symptoms of chronic abdominal pain in children and to differentiate the causes of organic and non-organic causes . Methods: 250 participants aged 1 to 18 years were examined within one year (2018). Based on clinical and paraclinical findings, the causes of organic or functional abdominal pain were determinded per case. After collecting the data, using SPSS statistical software version 19 were analyzed and significance level was set at less than 0.05 . Results: Of 250 samples, 57.6% were girls and 42.4% were boys. In our study, 64.8% of patients had organic causes and 35.2% of them had functional causes. Among the gastrointestinal causes; gastroesophageal reflux disease (34.5%) allergic constipation (31.5%) and H-pylori gastritis (14.1%) were the most common causes . Conclusion: According to the results of this study, special attention is needed to chronic abdominal pain in children and adolescents. In addition to organic causes, which make up two thirds of the total causes, examination of non-organic causes that involves one third of the causes shows the importance of the review of this aspect .
