Abstract

Irritable colon syndrome of infancy is the most frequent cause of chronic diarrhea in children between eight months and three years of age who are still gaining weight at a normal rate. The diarrhea occurs in response to a wide variety of stimuli, and a strong family history of functional bowel disorders is common. The usual dietary regimens for diarrhea perpetuate the problem. A regular diet, without snacks, is recommended, with fluids restricted to unchilled beverages taken with meals.
