What increases my risk for mesenteric lymphadenitis?

The people who are most at risk to contract a case of mesenteric lymphadenitis are children. Since the stomach flu is one common cause, you should try to avoid anyone who has that virus and always wash your hands to prevent a bacterial infection. Uncooked meat, unpasteurized milk, or contaminated water can contain yersinia bacteria, which may give you an infection that leads to mesenteric lymphadenitis. Practicing good health habits may lower your risk of contracting this condition.
