TABLE 1222 Assessment of Dehydration

Bacteria that invade the mucosa of the terminal ileum and colon can cause dysentery, which is characterized by frequent bowel movements that contain blood, mucus, or pus. The diarrhea is often accompanied by fever, tenesmus, and painful defecation. Infants and children who have bloody or mucousy diarrhea after having received antibiotics may have antibiotic-associated pseudomembranous colitis due to infection with cytotoxigenic C. difficile. Infestations with Entamoeba histolytica may also cause dysentery. Table 122-3 lists the enteric infections that cause children to have bloody diarrhea.
