Abstract

Chest pain in Paediatrics is a common symptom culminating in hospital admissions and specialist referrals. Cardiac etiology is found to be the culprit in minority of the cases. Acute chest pain is a clinical syndrome that may be caused by almost any condition affecting the thorax, abdomen, or internal organs. On occasions this extensive and expensive diagnostic work up can be avoided with awareness of commoner and non-severe reasons. We report a case of a child with Bornholm disease secondary to enterovirus infection.
