Abstract:

Rotavirus is a common cause of diarrhoea in children. There is a need for data on prevalence of rotavirus diarrhoea especially in our territory. This study was carried out to study the prevalence of rotavirus infection in children upto one year presenting with diarrhoea with rotavirus infection in them. A perspective observational study was carried out to study the prevalence of rotavirus infection amongst children up to one year presenting with diarrhoea. The clinical profile of the children was analysed along with detection of rotavirus antigen in stool. A total of 35 children (26 male and 9 female) with diarrhoea were included in the study. 19 cases (54%) (13 male (68%) and 6 female infants (32%) were infected with Rotavirus Gastroenteritis. The remaining 16 infants (46%) were infected with other than Rotavirus Gastroenteritis.The prevalence of rotavirus infection was 54 % in our territory. Also observed that male children were predominantly infected with rotavirus.
