Among 20 children admitted with laboratory-confirmed influenza, viral RNA was detected in respiratory secretion, stool and blood in 19, 5 and 1 children, respectively. Gastrointestinal symptoms were common but were not associated with viral RNA in stool. nH1N1 viremia was detected, for the first time, in an immunocompetent child.
