Dr. Cornelia Franz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Blood in her stool: (assuming this was a stool report) it means that blood was detected in a stool sample. This is actually pretty common. ..And it can be from an anal fissure, a milk intolerance, a virus, diarrhea...Any number of things. You pediatrician should go over the different possibilities and help you decide what to do.
