Points & Pearls Excerpt

  • Diarrhea, with or without vomiting, must be present for the diagnosis of acute gastroenteritis.
  • 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.
