  • Rotaviruses are the major cause of infantile gastroenteritis world-wide. Much antigenic diversity exists amongst them. This has important implications to diagnosis, epidemiology and vaccination strategies. The nature of this diversity is now well understood. This review outlines and discussed our current knowledge of the subject from a historical perspective.
