Abstract

Rotavirus infection is one the most frequent cause of diarrhea among infants and children. Although it is not associated to specific dermatologic clinical pictures, recently, different clinical manifestations have been reported in association with this infection. They include exanthema, Gianotti-Crosti syndrome, and Acute Infantile Hemorrhagic Edema. The condition can be diagnosed microbiologically with stool cultures. The prognosis is excellent in healthy, immunocompetent individuals.
