Gastrointestinal Infections

by John Fisher, MD

Gastrointestinal infections account for a large amount of disease worldwide (both acute and chronic). Generally, the bulk of gastrointestinal infections can be attributed to viruses, such as norovirus, although much of the burden of acute and chronic infections worldwide can be attributed to bacteria and parasites as well.

Treatment of gastrointestinal infections is targeted toward specific infectious agents. Unfortunately, this is being complicated by antibiotic resistance. Understanding when and when not to use antibiotics is very important for preventing further resistance and providing effective treatment.
