Red Flag Conditions

Red Flags typically suggest serious life threatening disease such as malignancy (e.g leukaemia), infection (e.g septic arthritis or osteomyelitis) or non-accidental injury.  

Red flags may also suggest inflammatory joint or muscle disease. 

It is important to remember that the child who is immunosuppressed from disease or treatment may not demonstrate typical features of sepsis. It is important to have a low threshold to be concerned and seek specialist advice.
