Astroviruses


Presentation

  • CONCLUSIONS: The present study showed that although HAstV infections occur at low frequency, they are involved in severe pediatric cases of acute gastroenteritis presenting with a high diversity of strains, including the lineages 3c and 4c, which were[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Burkina Faso
  • STUDY DESIGN: Viral nucleic acids were enriched from the feces from 48 cases of unexplained diarrhea from Burkina Faso, sequenced, and compared against all known viral genomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Fatigue
  • In addition, physical fatigue in riot police that have been dispatched and returned may decrease the tolerance against astrovirus infection and lead to the onset of symptoms.[omicsonline.org]

Nausea
  • Three weeks after the third fludarabine course he presented with a 5-day-history of watery diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In humans, Astrovirus causes gastroenteritis, characterized by diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, fever and abdominal pain. Infection is common, usually not severe and often asymptomatic.[bio-rad-antibodies.com]

Abdominal Pain
  • Symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain generally persist for only a few days.[web.stanford.edu]
  • Typically, HAstV infection induces a mild, watery diarrhea that lasts 2 to 3 days, associated with vomiting, fever, anorexia, and abdominal pain.[savyondiagnostics.com]
  • Ten individuals experienced general clinical symptoms, which included abdominal pain, diarrhea, and headache.[omicsonline.org]
Flaccid Paralysis
  • In 2009, VA2/HMO-A strains were detected in children with non-polio acute flaccid paralysis in Nigeria, Pakistan [ 9 ], and India [ 42 ].[mdpi.com]

Treatment

  • Symptomatic treatment was given but since his condition deteriorated, high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin (IvIg) treatment, 0.4 g/kg for four days was initiated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10coded.com]

Epidemiology

  • Data on the epidemiology and the response to the outbreak was collected. RESULTS: All samples had a 99% match to human astrovirus type 5.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • DISCUSSION Many questions still remain regarding the epidemiology of astroviruses.[web.stanford.edu]
  • The understanding of molecular epidemiology and molecular processing of the virus may lead to specific prevention strategies.[journals.lww.com]
