Diagnostic de la gastroentérite bactérienne

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2015, vol. 11, no. 470, p. 856-861
Abstract The etiologic agents of acute gastroenteritis are diverse. The diagnosis of bacterial pathogens is particularly challenging given the large amount of vastly diverse indigenous gastrointestinal organisms present in stool. Multiple methods must be used by the clinical microbiology laboratories to diagnose the cause of acute gastroenteritis, including bacterial cultures, ELISA, and microscopy. Due to the limitations of conventional methods, there is still room for improvement in the detection of pathogens by using the molecular methods. This paper discusses these different diagnostic approaches and limitations.
