HARD TO SAY: We do not have any of the workup to review or the history or exam.Without that data, the quality of the workup and possible omissions cannot be determined. At 11 the possibilities range from anatomical, infectious,functional,allergic to emotional.Hopefully he was evaluated by a pedi GI working with a child psycholiogist.
