In brief: Define "enteritis"

"enteritis" is a non-specific term that means there is something wrong with your kid's gut.
More specifically, the term can be applied to: viral or bacterial gastroenteritis, radiation exposure, eosinophilic disease, tuberculosis involvement, autoimmune problems as with systemic lupus, crohn's disease. If the problem is self-limited worry less than if persistent. Ask doctor for a clear diagnosis.

In brief: Depends

Usually children get a viral enteritis and recover uneventfully with symptomatic management, but without knowing what signs and symptoms they have had it is difficult to say much more.
