Common causes of viral gastroenteritis include rotavirus, calicivirus (norovirus and sapovirus), astrovirus, and enteric adenovirus (EAdV). The major symptoms of rotavirus gastroenteritis include watery diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and fever. The major symptoms of norovirus gastroenteritis include watery diarrhea, vomiting, anorexia, abdominal pain, and fever. AdV-associated acute gastroenteritis is usually milder but lasts longer (5 to 12 days) than other viral gastroenteritis viruses. The major symptoms of astrovirus gastroenteritis include diarrhea, vomiting, anorexia, abdominal pain, and fever, which are generally milder than those of rota-and norovirus gastroenteritis. Due to the difficulty of propagating many gastroenteritis viruses, reliable antigen detection assays remain unavailable for many viral families because of the lack of specific antibodies. Both antigenic and genetic typing methods are important in understanding the classification and epidemiology of many gastroenteritis viruses and for developing preventive strategies against the diseases caused by pathogens. Typing does not affect clinical treatment. Therefore, typing of gastroenteritis viruses is used mainly in research laboratories. The recently recommended new classification system based on sequence information for all 11 genomic RNA segments is an extension of the previous classification systems. There is no neutralization-based serologic test for most other gastroenteritis viruses. Application of assays in sero-surveillance against gastroenteritis viruses has played an important role in understanding the importance of viruses in different populations.
