Lymphadenitis is a condition in which your lymph nodes end up being inflamed. When the condition influences the lymph nodes in the membrane layer that connects your digestive tract to the abdominal wall, it's called mesenteric lymphadenitis. A viral intestinal tract infection is the usual source of mesenteric lymphadenitis, called mesenteric adenitis. Abdominal pain is common in teens and children, and it can be difficult to know when it needs medical attention.
