|Background||Viral gastroenteritis is an infection caused by a variety of viruses that result in vomiting or diarrhea. Many different viruses can cause gastroenteritis, including rotaviruses, noroviruses, adenoviruses, sapoviruses, and astroviruses. The main symptoms of viral gastroenteritis are watery diarrhea and vomiting. The affected person may also have headache, fever, and abdominal cramps ("stomach ache"). In general, the symptoms begin 1 to 2 days following infection with a virus that causes gastroenteritis and may last for 1 to 10 days, depending on which virus causes the illness. Some research studies have shown that the duration of the symptoms are approximately three to four days. Rotavirus is the more frequent cause of acute diarrhea in children under two years of age. Adenoviruses and astroviruses cause diarrhea mostly in young children, but older children and adults can also be affected.|
