Causes of central abdominal pain include:

  • early appendicitis
  • small intestinal obstruction
  • acute gastritis
  • acute pancreatitis
  • ruptured abdominal aneurysm

In isolated central abdominal pain with no other features, it is often best to repeat the examination after two or three hours have passed; by this time other symptoms may have emerged which help the examiner to come to a firm diagnosis.

Rarer causes may include:

  • mesenteric thrombosis
  • myocardial infaraction
