The Role of Laboratory Diagnosis in Children with Chronic Diarrhea

Chronic diarrhea is defined as diarrhea which has occurred for more than 14 days and if it is caused by infection, then it is known as persistent diarrhea. The incidence rate of persistent diarrhea in some developing countries is ranged between 3-23%.1,2 In order to establish diagnosis and to provide treatment of chronic or persistent diarrhea, we need a simple and non-invasive examination such as stool analysis. It should be continued with stool culture and stool parasite analysis to discover the etiologic pathogenic bacteria or parasite.3,4 Invasive examination such as colonoscopy is occasionally needed in order to discover infective colitis grossly and to obtain colon biopsy at once to differentiate infection and non-specific inflammation.5 This study is aimed to recognize the result of stool examination and colonoscopy in patients with persistent diarrhea in Department of Pediatrics Cipto Mangunkusumo hospital for three months period.
