Pain is a common complaint in children with gastrointestinal tract pathology and it has significant consequences for patients’ quality of life. A thorough evaluation should be performed to determine the cause and severity. Understanding the pathophysiology of pain in various conditions is key to effective management. This chapter outlines the aetiology and general principles of the management of pain in gastrointestinal disease. The specific management of common gastrointestinal conditions associated with pain, e.g. inflammatory bowel disease, gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, pancreatitis, and gut dysmotility disorders are discussed.
