Mesentery is a membrane that attaches the intestine to the abdominal wall...there will be many lymph nodes within it to fight against infection and to protect our body...Mesenteric lymphadenitis is an inflammation of these lymph nodes....it can be bacterial, viral,parasite infection...Mesenteric lymphadenitis often gets better without treatment... He may need medicine to reduce a fever or control pain...rest is necessary,he has to consume lots of water,antibiotics are needed to control inflammation and to prevent serious complications...consult nearest pediatrician they will do the needful.
