-Empiric therapy for bacterial enteric infections recommended for patients with advanced HIV (CD4 count less than cells/mm3 or concomitant AIDS-defining illnesses) and clinically severe diarrhea (at least 6 stools/day or bloody stool) and/or associated fever/chills/ Adenoviruses have a worldwide distribution, where infections occur throughout the year causing 5 to 10% of all febrile illnesses in infants and young children. Most individuals have serologic evidence of a prior adenoviral infection by the age of Although many adenovirus types are found in stool from patients with diarrhea, only enteric. Among children in the United States, acute diarrhea accounts for > million outpatient visits, , hospitalizations, and approximately deaths/year. In developing countries, diarrhea is a common cause of mortality among children aged.   Symptoms of Escherichia coli infection may be subtle and nonspecific in infants and young children. Even in older children, symptoms may resemble those of common viral illnesses, leading to missed or delayed diagnosis. A thorough history, including any history of a prior urinary tract infection (UTI), and thoughtful analysis of the information provided is essential.

Intra-abdominal infections generally occurs after entry of enteric organisms into the peritoneal cavity through a defect in the intestinal wall or a viscus as a result of infarction, obstruction, or trauma. Abdominal, retroperitoneal and visceral abscesses generally occur as a complication of local or generalized peritonitis, secondary to appendicitis, diverticulitis, necrotizing enterocolitis. INFECTIOUS HEPATITIS - HEPATITIS A VIRUS. Hepatitis A virus (HAV) (figure 2) causes infectious hepatitis which is transmitted via the oral-fecal route as a result of close contact such as in day-care centers. The virus is also spread by sexual contact and in contaminated food.

Abstract. Cancer patients, particularly those with neutropenia, are at risk for enteric and intra-abdominal infections. Specific infections and infectious syndromes in this setting include neutropenic enterocolitis, bacterial infections such as Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), viral infections such as CMV colitis, and parasitic infections such as strongyloidiasis.
