abstract

  • Using a broad molecular testing approach, high rates of enteropathogens were detected in children with AGE, dominated by norovirus genogroup II and C difficile. Coinfections were common but had no identifiable impact on clinical manifestations. As routine diagnostics of AGE progressively evolve toward nucleic acid-based pathogen detection, ongoing systematic studies are needed to better analyze the clinical significance of results.
