Abstract

New guidelines on the management of acute diarrhea in adults were promulgated in 2016.

The aim of this review was to provide an overview of the context of acute diarrhea and how to generally approach a patient; to present some new areas in the field concerning diagnostics, particularly culture-independent testing, as well as some of the risks and benefits of treatment; and to discuss prevention, particularly in the traveler’s diarrhea setting.
