Internal Medicine - Gastroenterology
In brief: Viral Diarrheas
The major causes of gastroenteritis are viruses, accounting for 1/3 of acute diarrheal illnesses.
These fall into 5 categories: rotaviruses (lasts 3-7 days); enteric adenovirus (last 5-12 days with vomiting and fever); norwalk virus (lasts 1-2 days with flu-like symptoms); calicivirus (with shellfish, lasts 1-2 days in adults; longer in kids); astrovirus (kids & in nursing homes, lasts 2-3 days).
