An enzyme immunoassay was used to detect rotavirus in the stools of 176 pediatric patients presenting with gastroenteritis. The highest incidence of rotavirus infection was found among patients less than 1 year of age. In contrast to previously reported studies, 23% of neonates with gastroenteritis had rotavirus in their stools. This relatively easy and rapid method was helpful in the management of pediatric patients with gastroenteritis.
