Abstract

  • Cysts

  • Intestinal tumors

  • Tumors of liver and spleen

  • Tumors of the ovaries

  • Abdominal tuberculosis

Intra-abdominal tumors are frequently overlooked in children because the physician is either not palpating the abdomen carefully or the child is tensing the abdominal muscle, such as during crying. Therefor, the tumor may be noted first by the mother while bathing the child. In children, one can distinguish even fluid-filled lesion from solid tumors by palpation.
