Abstract:

Rotavirus and norovirus are important etiologies of gastroenteritis among hospitalized children. During 2012-2013, we tested 207 residual stool specimens from children with healthcareassociated vomiting and/or diarrhea for rotavirus and norovirus. Twenty (10%) were rotavirus positive, and 3 (3%) were norovirus positive, stressing the importance of these pathogens in hospitalized children.
