  • VIRAL GASTROENTERITISBy: Dr.Malak M. El-Hazmi (GI T Block , Microbiology : 2011 )

  • OBJECTIVESDef. of GEViral etiology of GE ( Structures )EpidemiologyClinical Features Lab diagnosisTreatment &Prevention (Vaccine)Rotavirus , Adenovirus , caliciviruses & Astrovirus .

  • Viruses associated with gastroenteritis

    Etiologic agents in severe diarrheal illnesses requiring H of infants & young children Other viruses; Coronaviruses ,Toroviruses , Adenovirus & Enteroviruses

  • VGE Electron micrographs

    Rotavirus AdenoviruscalicivirusAstrovirus


  • Epidemiology Distribution ; Worldwide in poor hygiene, overcrowding, and povertyAge ; Infants & young>>Older childrenTransmission ; Faecal-oral routeSeason ; Winter monthsEndemic inf ; Gp A rota & adeno 40,41Epidemic inf ; Norovirus VGE

  • Clinical Features VGEIP ;ShortSymptoms:D, V, Fever & abdominal crampsDehydration with Na Life threateningWinter vomiting disease: Vomiting > Diarrhoea Calicivirus

  • VGECell culture: [c/c]Fastidious growing poorly not used Electron microscopy: [EM]Catch all techMany disadvantages not usedSpecific test:ELISA for detection of viral ags in stool [rota , adeno , astro & caliciviruses] Lab diagnosis

  • VGETreatment:RehydrationPrevention: Sanitation & hygiene measuresNo vaccines except for rotavirus Management

  • ROTAVIRUSFamily:Reoviridae [Respiratory& Enteric Orphan]Description:11 segments dsRNADouble-layered icosahedralNonenveloped ~ 70 nmRNA dependent RNA polymerase7 groups [A-G]----- GpA most common

  • EpidemiologyRotaSpread:Faecal-oral routeAge: all age groupsSymptomatic inf ; 6 -24 ms.Peak ; Winter monthsInf ; Endemic

  • RotaPathogenesis

  • Clinical featuresRotaIntestinal inf:Infants & young children gastroenteritis or infantile GE IP = 1-2 dsWatery, nonbloody D,V & FDehydrationOutcomes VaryIn developed count. Mortality is lowIn developing count. Mortality is sig. ~1/2 of all GE cases AdmissionDeaths reported

  • Clinical featuresRotaIntestinal inf:Infants & young children GEOlder children+ adults asymptomaticImmuno ed hostschronic DExtra-intestinal inf:Encephalitis small n.

  • RotaSample; stool Immunoassay Most usedELISA , ICT& latex agglutinationEMGel electrophoresisRT.PCRCell culture

  • ENTERIC ADENOVIRUSESFamily: AdenoviridaeDescription:Nonenveloped, icosahedral , dsDNAOnly V with a fiber protruding from each of the vertices of the capsidFiber Attachment Hemagglutinin Type-specific ag

  • ENTERIC ADENOVIRUSESClassification:Adenoviruses 6 subgenera[A-F] 51 serotypes Grow in C/CEnteric adenoviruses Subgenus F . 40&41serotypes . Fastidious

  • ENTERIC ADENOVIRUSESClinical feature:Longer IP Less severe than rotavirusProlonged illnessDiagnosis:Ag detection in stool by ELISA Immunochromatography Tech.

  • CalicivirusesFamily ; Caliciviridae [Calyx =cup]Description :NonenvelopedssRNA,+ve polarityIcosahedral capsid Two morphologic typesTypical caliciviruses (Sapoviruses)Small Rounded Structured Viruses . (Noroviruses)

  • EpidemiologyFaecal-oral route [water, shellfish]Outbreaks of GE in schools, camps &cruiseAll age gps Clinical featuresChildren vomiting [projectile]Adults diarrheaDiagnosisViral Ag in stool by ELISA

    NOROVIRUS(Norwalk virus)

  • AstrovirusesFamily; Astroviridae [astro= a star]Description:NonenvelopedssRNA,+ve polarityIcosahedral capsid8 serotypes

  • AstrovirusesClinical features;Mild GEOutbreak of diarrhea
