<< Acute Gastroenteritis: Evidence-Based Management of Pediatric Patients

Points & Pearls Excerpt

  • Both vomiting AND diarrhea must be present for the diagnosis of acute gastroenteritis (AGE).
  • Consider other etiologies in patients in whom vomiting has continued more than 24 to 48 hours without diarrhea or in patients with focal abdomi­nal tenderness.
  • Most cases of AGE are due to viral pathogens and require minimal medical intervention; however, the course of bacterial causes of AGE tend to be more severe.
