I agree that appendicitis is a possible cause of your son's tummy pain, but the findings of the sonar in particular seem to point to the possible diagnosis of a fairly common mimic of appendicitis in children. Your son has been shown to have enlarged glands in his abdomen and his appendix seems to be normal. It is likely that he has a condition called 'mesenteric adenitis' This may follow after a tonsil infection in children.Just to make 100% sure and because of the severity and ongoing pain and fever your son is having,it would be best to get a deciding opinion from a paediatric surgeon. My opinion is that he does have mesenteric adenitis.
