Pediatric flu: One size does not fit all
from MedPage Today
Flu season is in full swing. By now, you've probably seen droves of patients with flu-like symptoms. But did those patients really have the flu? Of course, you know what the flu looks like: Patients come in with the abrupt onset of fever, myalgias, headaches, malaise, coughs, sore throats, and runny noses. Some may have nausea and vomiting. But plenty of other respiratory viruses can present in the same way. Young children often pose the greatest challenges for diagnosing and treating the flu because they do not arrive with the full complement of typical symptoms.
