Podcast 58: Irritable Child with Dr. Kevin

Dr. Kevin is back for our 58th podcast to talk about his approach to diagnosing inconsolable infants.

Unexplained irritability in the clinic setting needs to be assessed as an urgent medical presentation. Up to 5% of fussy children will have an organic cause to their distress.

As Dr. Kevin explains, there are a lot of badnesses lurking in the abdomen and head of an inconsolable crying infant including meningitis, trauma, intussusception, and appendicitis. Keep your differential broad and do a full physical exam even if you find a red tympanic membrane.
