Family history

Because intussusception is not believed to have familial tendency. obtaining a family history would provide the least amount of information.Option A.C.D: Stool inspection. pain pattern. and abdominal palpation would reveal possible indicators of intussusception. Currant jelly stools. containing blood and mucus. are an indication of intussusception. Acute. episodic abdominal pain is characteristic of intussusception. A sausage-shaped mass may be palpated in the right upper quadrant.
