Children can have a wide range of gastrointestinal disorders, and exams will require you to be able to differentiate between each one. In this episode, I’m providing a high level overview of common pediatric GI disorders:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Hirschsprung disease
  • Intussusception
  • Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis
  • Biliary atresia
  • Meckel’s diverticulum
  • Short bowel syndrome

Plus, there’s a PodQuiz at the end…so make sure you listen all the way through!
