Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Group Japan
Children less than five years of age, hospitalized for RV GE or AGE and children with outpatient or emergency room visits for RV GE or AGE, between November 2009 and October 2014 (i.e., before and after the introduction of RV vaccination in Japan) in any of the selected hospitals.
Other: Data collection
Data sheet.

Detailed Description:

The electronic admission database or any other applicable database of the hospital will be reviewed to identify hospitalized children/children with outpatient visits/emergency room visits, less than five years of age who had been diagnosed with acute gastroenteritis (AGE) or RV GE either by the International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems 10th Revision (ICD 10) diagnostic code (AA00-AA09 for intestinal infectious diseases and A08.0 for RV specific GE) or by RV positive rapid diagnosis kit results.

Note: The outcomes for the outpatient and emergency room visits will be assessed only in case the data for outpatient and emergency room visits can be obtained from at least one of the study centers.
