Aim of the work to show rate of constipation among school age children in Assuit University Children Hospital


Childhood constipation is a frequently overlooked global health problem, which is developing in a public health issue in many parts of the world.(1) Constipation is one of the commonest digestive complaints in children(2) Constipation has long been considered a symptom, rather than a disease(3)

It is often perceived as infrequent motions or passage of hard stools. Some defined constipation as less than 3 bowel motions per week)4(

or as difficulty in passing stools (5) Approximately 0.5% of school children have defecation frequency less than 3 per week and 0.3% have fecal incontinence(6) Furthermore, 20% of children also have at least 1 clinical feature of constipation.7 Therefore, it is important to use diagnostic criteria based on multiple symptoms to define constipation

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Neurologic conditions in adults associated with acute or chronic exposure to lead or any of its salts. The most common lead related neurologic syndrome in adults consists of a polyneuropathy involving motor fibers. This tends to affect distal nerves and may present as wrist drop due to RADIAL NEUROPATHY. Additional features of chronic lead exposure include ANEMIA; CONSTIPATION; colicky abdominal pain; a bluish lead line of the gums; interstitial nephritis (NEPHRITIS, INTERSTITIAL); and saturnine gout. An encephalopathy may rarely occur. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1212)

Poisoning that results from chronic or acute ingestion, injection, inhalation, or skin absorption of HEAVY METALS. Acute and chronic exposures can cause ANEMIA; KIDNEY and LIVER damage; PULMONARY EDEMA; MEMORY LOSS and behavioral changes; bone deformities in children; and MISCARRIAGE or PREMATURE LABOR in pregnant women.

Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
