Keywords Acute infectious diarrhea; Stool multiplex polymerase chain reaction; Calprotectin
Core Tip Stool multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test showed improved sensitivity than conventional culture method in detecting bacterial pathogens in hospitalized patients with acute infectious diarrhea. Patients with positive stool PCR showed higher C-reactive protein expression level and colitis on sigmoidoscopy. Fecal calprotectin was found to correlate with the positivity of stool PCR, and the adjusted cut-off value of calprotectin for detecting bacterial pathogens by stool PCR was found to be 388 mg/kg.
