OBJECTIVE: To investigate the cause of infective diarrhea in children, special distribution of the infection and the drug sensitivity.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: We carried out pathogenic detection and drug sensitivity tests for one hundred and twenty-six children with diarrhea, including 67 children in infant group (0-<1 year) and 59 children in child group (1-5 years).
RESULTS: Fat particles and starch particles were seen in most stool samples under microscope; 42 kinds of pathogenic bacteria were obtained from 126 stool samples, including 10 Diarrheagenic E. coli (8 Enteropathogenic E. coli and Enteroinvasive E. coli); there were found 53 positive samples in the detection of anti-rotavirus antibody in 126 stool samples; in the drug sensitivity tests for major pathogenic bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus, Shigella, Salmonella and Diarrheagenic E. coli were highly sensitive.
CONCLUSIONS: The abuse of antimicrobial agents may result in intestinal disorders, leading to aggravation in diarrhea and antimicrobial agents based on drug sensitivity tests may be served as fundamental treatment of diarrhea for children.Free PDF Download
