Background and Aims: Some viruses have been reported to cause respiratory and gastroenteric infections simultaneously. In this case we presented detection of human respiratory virus (RSV) type B genome from diarrheal sample of a 12 months' child with acute gastroenteritis.
Results: The results indicated the presence of RSV subtype B genome in all three stool samples. Moreover, no sign of co-infections with other enteropathogenic agents reported.
Conclusions: It could be a simple shedding of virus through gastroenteric system.
