Abstract: Group A rotavirus infections were detected in 93 of 410 fecal samples from children with acute diarrhea, admitted in three main hospitals of Asunción, Paraguay, from August 1998 to August 2000. Most of the rotavirus-infected patients were admitted during the winter season in the three epidemic years. The rotavirus infection rate was highest in infants from 6 to 23 months of age. In the 93 samples examined, 10 different rotavirus electropherotypes were recognized, but two of them largely predominated. Only one sample showed a short electropherotype pattern, thus indicating a minor involvement of the rotavirus subgroup I in rotaviral acute diarrhea in the area and the time during which the survey was carried out.
