The investigators plan to retrospectively analyse a cohort of children who during the years 2010-2015 were referred to the Pediatric Clinic of Umeå University Hospital due to abdominal pain. The aims are to explore and descriptively describe the symptoms and effects of investigations performed. Furthermore, the investigators plan to contact the cases five years after the first contact for a follow up using a validated questionnaire of the ROME-III-criteria and analyse the long term prognosis and risk factors for prolonged severe symptoms.
