Abstract

287 patients with Acute Gastroenteritis were studied. Rotavirus accounted for 29.7% and bacterial aetiology for 9.3% of the cases. In the early infant age group (0-6 months), bacterial aetiology (28.8%) was commoner than Rotavirus aetiology (7.7%). In the older age groups, Rotavirus was more common than bacteria as a cause for Gastroenteritis.
