Abstract

The G and P genotypes of rotavirus stool isolates from 100 children were determined by reverse transcription-PCR and nucleotide sequencing. G1P[4] was the most prevalent genotype(41%), followed by G1P[8] (16%) and G4P[4] (14%). The G genoypes detected were G1 (73%), G4 (17.4%), G9 (6.3%), and G2 (2.8%). The P genotypes were P[4] (71%) and P[8] (29%). Coinfection with more than one G genotype occurred in 12 patients, and coinfection with more than one P genotype occurred in 11 patients.
