Blood with or without mucus in stools should guide a clinician in making a diagnosis of CMPA. In most instances a diagnosis of dysentery is entertained and treated. A healthy well thriving baby who is exclusively breast fed with blood or mucus in stool is likely to have CMPA.

CMPA is a clinical diagnosis based on history and physical examination. No diagnostic tests are required.
