Stomach Flu (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Viral Gastroenteritis (say: GAS-tro-enter-EYE-tis) is the inflammation of the stomach and small and large intestines. Viral gastroenteritis means the inflammation is caused by infection with a virus. It often causes vomiting (throwing up) or diarrhea. Viral gastroenteritis is often called "stomach flu," but it is not caused by flu (influenza) viruses. Viral gastroenteritis can be caused by many different viruses, including Rotaviruses, Torovirus, Adenoviruses, Caliciviruses, Astroviruses, and a group of Norwalk-like viruses. (English)
