Hmm..not so good!: Hi FilizD The amylase number doesn't quite make sense, but the rest could be infection or some other process, definitely abnormal. Depends a lot on age of your child, and of course on physical exam and your history. I'd look for a second opinion if your child is sick. Good luck!!
