During the surveillance of rotavirus strains that were circulating in Argentinean children from 2000 to 2004, seven rotaviruses were detected bearing the genotype combination G9P[8]. The molecular characterization of the VP7 and NSP4 genes and the RNA migration patterns support the hypothesis that rotaviruses G9 could have been reintroduced into Argentina as a novel G9P[8] strain, rather than represent VP7 gene reassortants from G9P[6] strains that had been circulating previously in this country.
