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. Similarly, in a formula fed child who is otherwise well and thriving, blood or mucus in stool is likely to have CMPA. Absence of systemic signs of infection are the biggest pointer towards CMPA. CMPA is a clinical diagnosis based on history and physical examination. No diagnostic tests are required.
