In France, children represent an important part of consultations in general practice. Gut feelings (GF) is a transcultural concept studied by Dutch and French general practitionners according to precise definition criteria. International literature suggests the importance of GF in detecting severe childhood infections. We aim to evaluate the place that GF can have in the French pediatric emergency departments and with what criteria of definition in this context.
