Answer

See the list below:

  • The treatment of children with known GI tract disorders should be discussed with a physician familiar with the child whenever possible.

  • Experienced personnel, such as a pediatric surgeon, otolaryngologist, or gastroenterologist, should perform endoscopy.

  • Psychiatric consultation is indicated for those with a suspected or confirmed associated psychiatric problem.
