Rotavirus infection in children

Meta Description: Rotavirus diarrhea continues to be the most important cause of diarrheal deaths, hospitalizations, and outpatient visits annually for children less than 5 years of age. Good hygiene along with a vaccine with broad and consistent serotype coverage will help to decrease the burden of rotavirus gastroenteritis.

Rotavirus is recognized as a major cause of non-bacterial gastroenteritis especially in infants and young children worldwide. It has been found that Rotavirus infection, mostly caused by Group A viruses, is prevalent in human populations worldwide. Although the virus infects older individuals, the disease can be severe in immunologically naïve infants and young children. Rotavirus diarrhea continues to be the most important cause of diarrheal deaths, hospitalizations, and outpatient visits annually for children less than 5 years of age. Rotavirus infection causes more severe diarrhea associated with vomiting as predominant feature compared to non-rotavirus infections.

Since rotavirus causes increased economic burden disease prevention becomes very important. General preventive measures include use of good sanitation and hygiene practices like hand washing, promoting exclusive breast feeding up to the age of 6 month and achieving good nutritional status. Other measures include rotavirus vaccine, a specific, easy and important preventive approach; along with other therapeutic interventions such as oral rehydration solution and zinc supplementation. Good hygiene along with a vaccine with broad and consistent serotype coverage will help to decrease the burden of rotavirus gastroenteritis.
