Abstract

Astrovirus is generally known for inducing mild diarrhea in infants. However, an outbreak of astrovirus infection occurred in adults on February 14, 2014, in Korea. Astrovirus type 1a is the predominant strain worldwide but was not detected in this study. By contrast, type 5 was detected in all specimens, although type 5 is relatively uncommon in Korea.
