Abstract:

Rotavirus is a major cause of severe gastroenteritis in young children between 6 months to 2 years of age This study was done with the aim to determine the utility of rapid antigen detection kit for diagnosis of rota viral infection in suspected cases of diarrhoea in children ? 2yrs. We found that out of the 32 samples, 06 tested postive for the rotaviral antigen by rapid immunochromatography method. 66.7% of the cases were in 13 24 months age group. Detection of Rotavirus infection is necessary in determining the clinical severity as well as finding the prevalence and incidence of this infection in the community. The rapid test kit used is easy to use and inexpensive. This can detect the cases of Rotaviral diarrhoea and be helpful in diagnosis as well as in epidemiological stuides. It can also prevent the unnecessary use of antibiotics.The rapid antigen detection kit for diagnosis of rota viral infection in suspected cases of diarrhoea in children ? 2yrs can be a useful tool.
