- The guideline entitled 'Functional abdominal pain in children' has been developed by a multidisciplinary working group on behalf of the Dutch Pediatric Association in 2015. - History and physical examination are essential in diagnosing pediatric functional abdominal pain. Additional diagnostic testing is of limited value when alarm symptoms are absent. - Reassurance and education of both the child and parent(s), are the cornerstones in the treatment of pediatric functional abdominal pain. - In case of persisting symptoms, hypnotherapy or cognitive behavioral therapy can be started. There is no evidence for any pharmacological treatment.
