It is a common practice in our country to use antibiotics for treatment of diarrhea in children usually without taking into account viral agents. In order to detect incidence of gastroenteritis due to rotavir0s and adenovirüs in children, we included 112 children either applying to our hospital for fever, vomiting, abdominal pain and strong diarrhea or detected for diarrhea from day-centers. Ninetyfour healthy children from different day centers were included into study as control group. All children were 0 to 6 years old. We obtained stool samples from all children and screened for rotavirüs antigen (Diarlex ROTA, Orion Diagnostica, USA) and adenovirüs antigen (Novum Diagn GmbH Germany)by ELISA. We detected rotavirüs in 14 children (12.5 %) and adenovirüs in 5 (4.5 %) children and both viruses coincidentally in 1 child. In the control group, 3 children (3.2 %) had rotavirüs and 1 (1.06 %) had enteric adenovirüs. Rotavirüs and adenovirüs agents must be investigated in children with diarrhea in winter especially.
