Summary
Clinical features are presented of 251 Western Australian Aboriginal infants & children with diarrhoea treated over 2-year period; Evidence of malnutrtion was present in 40% of patients and 37% were anaemic; Sugar intolerence complicated the clinical course in one-quarter of cases; More than one-half of patients had enteric pathogens in their stools; The clinical pattern of diarrhoeal illnesses seen in young Aborigines resembles that seen in underprivileged communities in developing countries; Improvement of situation will depend on elevation of unsatisfactory standards of living, nutrition, education and hygiene
