Rotavirus, Norovirus and Adenovirus have been reported as the common viral pathogens of acute
gastroenteritis. These viruses are transmitted by feco-oral path. The main symptoms of viral gastroenteritis
are diarrhea and vomiting. The affected person may also have headache, fever, and abdominal cramps.
Since most viruses causing gastroenteritis cannot be isolated in cell culture, direct visualization in stool
specimens by microscopy is still the mainstay of diagnosis. Although, the introduction of more sensitive
techniques for antigen detection in stool, based on immunoassay, has improved the diagnosis and
makes it easier and more specific.
