Recuerda, en el ultrasonido, se ven los quistes claritos!
Currant jelly stool
Intussusception is the most common cause of small bowel obstruction in children between the ages of 6 months and 4 years.
Clinical findings of crampy,
intermittent abdominal pain, vomiting, palpable abdominal mass, and “currant jelly” stools are classic.
Patients with these characteristic symptoms probably do not require ultrasound diagnosis before attempted enema reduction. Many of these clinical features are present in young children with abdominal pain for other reasons, and some children with
intussusception do not exhibit all the classic features. In such children, sonography can help confirm or exclude intussusception.
Sensitivity and specificity for the diagnosis of intussusception with ultrasound is virtually 100%
