Gastroenteritis is serious public health problem in India. A 15-year retrospective study was conducted to analyze etiological agents of gastroenteritis and to establish antimicrobial resistance pattern of bacterial pathogens. Fecal samples from patients with diarrhoea were received prior to antibiotic administration and processed for identification of various pathogens Out of 10,446 stool samples collected during study period, 1990 (19.05%) and 538 (5.15%) yielded bacterial pathogens and parasites respectively. The most frequently isolated parasite and bacterial pathogen were Giardia lamblia and Vibrio cholerae respectively. Majority of enteric pathogens were isolated from the children. Bacteria isolated showed resistance to commonly used antimicrobials.
