Introduction

The first Guidelines on Childhood Acute Gastroenteritis (AGE) in Malaysia were published in 2001 by the College of Paediatrics, Academy of Medicine of Malaysia (AMMCOP). Since then there has been a proliferation of publications and new findings in this area in the literature.

Over the last few years, there has been publication of a few guidelines on the management of childhood AGE. The new WHO Guidelines on the ‘Treatment of Diarrhoea’ (2005) caters mainly for the need of developing countries with a limited health care resources,1 while other guidelines such as those from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) cater mainly for North America and the European countries, respectively.2-5 Therefore there is an urgent need to have a local guidelines catering to the specific need for Malaysia.
