According to the New York Times Health Guide [1]:

"Enteritis is usually caused by eating or drinking substances that are contaminated with bacteria or viruses. The germs settle in the small intestine and cause inflammation and swelling. Enteritis may also be caused by: An autoimmune condition such as Crohn's disease Certain drugs, including ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, and cocaine Damage from radiation therapy The inflammation can also involve the stomach (gastritis) and large intestine (colitis). Risk factors include recent family illness with intestinal symptoms, recent travel, or exposure to untreated or contaminated water. Types of enteritis include: Bacterial gastroenteritis Campylobacter enteritis E. coli enteritis Food poisoning Radiation enteritis Salmonella enteritis Shigella enteritis Staph aureus food poisoning"

It adds that "Persons with diarrhea (especially young children) who are unable to drink fluids because of nausea may need medical care and fluids through a vein (intravenous fluids)...The diarrhea can cause rapid and extreme dehydration in babies." In entering hundreds of profiles, I have found gastroenteritis to be the most common cause of deaths of infants and young children--at least in rural Puerto Rico circa 1885 to 1950, probably because of lack of sanitation, antibiotics, and good medical care.
