Abstract: Infection of the gastrointestinal tract are still amongst the most common infections of childhood. Despite improvements in the standard of living over the last fifty years, gastroenteritis still constitutes a sizeable amount of general practitioner consultations and hospital admissions, Although most infections’ are mild and self-limiting with the minimum of active treatment, a small proportion require more aggressive management and hospital admission. With the advent of oral rehydration solutions the management of gastroenteritis has become simpler and the complication of hypernatraemic dehydration rare.
