The idea that human bocavirus (hBoV) infection possibly plays a role in gastroenteritis has been suggested because of the frequent manifestation of gastrointestinal symptoms. The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of hBoV in children with gastroenteritis. We studied the etiologic agents in 962 children hospitalized with gastroenteritis.(More)
Emerging Infectious Diseases • www.cdc.gov/eid • Vol. 13, No. 5, May 2007 791 dulating severity and relapsed after a latent period of another 2 weeks. Although the isolate was highly resistant to clarithromycin in vitro, the patient improved clinically as symptoms disappeared. Results of stool cultures taken 5 weeks after resolution of clinical symptoms(More)
In South Korea, WU polyomavirus (WUPyV) was detected in 34 (7%) of 486 children with acute lower respiratory tract infections, 3 (4.2%) of 72 asymptomatic children, and as coinfection with other respiratory viruses in 23 (67.6%) children. Although WUPyV was frequently detected, its clinical role has not been distinguished from that of coinfecting viruses.
Rotavirus is the most important etiological agent in children with acute gastroenteritis (AGE). The recent implementation of a rotavirus vaccine in Korea requires the monitoring of prevailing rotavirus strains in order to control the infection. One hundred thirty-nine rotavirus strains were detected in children hospitalized with AGE in Seoul, Korea from(More)
The etiologic role of recently identified respiratory viruses for acute wheezing in children is not yet clear. The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of recently identified viruses, including human metapneumovirus (hMPV), human bocavirus (hBoV), human coronavirus NL63 (hCoV-NL63), and human coronavirus HKU1 (hCoV-HKU1) in children with(More)
Norovirus (NoV), a single-stranded, positive RNA virus, is an important etiologic agent of acute gastroenteritis in children worldwide. In this study, a total of 434 fecal samples collected from 434 children with acute gastroenteritis in Seoul, between September 2007 and July 2008 were tested to determine the molecular epidemiology of NoVs and characterize(More)
Recently, HRV-C was identified as a new species of HRV, but its spectrum of clinical disease is still not clear. The purpose of this study was to investigate the molecular epidemiology of HRVs in children with acute lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs). A total of 54 HRV-positive samples that were negative for other respiratory viruses were sequenced.(More)
Recently, the emergence of a new NoV GII-4 variant strain every 2 or 3 years has been reported. One hundred seventeen NoV GII strains were detected by RT-PCR in children with AGE between August 2008 and February 2010. In phylogenetic analyses, GII-4 and GII-3 were the most frequently detected strains. The detection rate of the 2008 variant was similar to(More)
Human parechoviruses (HPeVs) are associated with gastroenteritis (GE), although their etiologic role is uncertain. The purpose of this study was to detect HPeVs in children with GE in Korea. A total of 348 stool samples that were negative for common enteric viruses were screened for HPeV using RT-PCR. Of the 348 stool samples, seven (2.0%) were positive for(More)
