One‐year survey of astrovirus infection in children with gastroenteritis in a large hospital in Hungary: Occurrence and genetic analysis of astroviruses
TLDR
This study investigated the epidemiology and genotype diversity of HAstVs detected in children admitted to hospital with gastroenteritis in Hungary and detected genotypes 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8, indicating the importance of emerging genotype 8 infections. Expand
Comparison of clinical characteristics between astrovirus and rotavirus infections diagnosed in 1997 to 2002 in Hungary.
TLDR
HAstV- Infected children had similar symptoms to those occurring in rotavirus infection, however, astrovirus-infected patients had a significantly shorter duration of diarrhea and vomiting, and they required a shorter hospitalization. Expand
Human astrovirus infection associated with childhood intussusception
TLDR
Human astroviruses are small (27 – 34 nm in diameter), round particles with a six-pointed star-like surface structure that are one of the major causes of gastro-enteritis worldwide among infants, children and occasionally among adults and immunosuppressed patients. Expand
[Lower bone density (osteopenia) in adolescent girls with oligomenorrhea and secondary amenorrhea].
TLDR
Neither the ion or hormonal values, nor the clinical parameters showed correlation with the BMD values, except of the body mass index (BMI), which showed a loose positive linear correlation. Expand
Comparison of clinical characteristics between astrovirus and rotavirus infections diagnosed in 1997 to 2002 in Hungary
TLDR
The severity and clinical characteristics of human astrovirus (HAstV) infections among hospitalized children and compare them with children infected by rotavirus were determined andRotavirus‐infected children had shorter duration of diarrhea and longer hospitalization than astrov virus‐ Infected children.
