Part of the Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis book series (IAPA)


During the two decades since the discovery of Norwalk virus in 1972(1) and rotavirus in 1973,(2) the viral etiology of acute nonbacterial gastroenteritis has been established and a considerable number of viruses are now recognized pathogens, responsible for medically important diarrheal illness.
