Abstract

Noroviruses are a major cause of sporadic cases and epidemic outbreaks of gastroenteritis. The development of molecular diagnostic assays has led to an increased recognition of the significance of these viruses as causes of gastroenteritis in all age groups. This article reviews the epidemiology, clinical manifestations and pathogenesis of norovirus infection, and it describes the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to this disease.
