Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your query I would like to tell you that it seems that your son is having right quadrant pain and vomiting . It can be due to Acute cholecystitis or liver abscess . Actually all conditions that can lead to acute abdomen like kidney stones etc needs to be ruled out as sometimes the pain is reffered and it is not present at the original site You need to see a physician for this because physical examination will provide the biggest clue for this as tenderness can be elicited which can give a clue to the possible etiology .A USG Abdomen will be necessary and confirm the diagnosis. Treatment will be according to the cause . Take care. Dr. Shruti
