Abstract

A quarter of pediatric surgical emergencies are non trauma and are for most of them limping child, acute abdominal pain, and acute scrotum. All of the child's lower limb pathology can be described as a limp, and the same is true for abdominal pain and acute scrotum. We will describe the important inquiring and clinical tools as well as a few simple paraclinics that allow to recognize the few cases requiring emergency care.
