Acute Enteritis, Dysentery

Acute enteritis is most often due to food products that have been contaminated with bacteria or toxins. Symptoms are sudden abdominal pain, borborygmus, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, loose or watery stools. Symptoms that often accompany enteritis include fever, headache and sensitivity to pressure around the umbilicus. Dehydration and toxicosis may occur if immediate measures are not taken. Symptoms of acute dysentery are similar to those of enteritis but with tenesmus and scanty stools that contain blood, pus, or mucus.
