Less Severe Cases of Diarrheal Illness Can Still Lead to Child Deaths, Research Shows

University of Maryland School of Medicine

Diarrheal diseases are a leading cause of death for young children, accounting for nine percent of all deaths worldwide in children under five years of age, with most occurring in children under two years of age. Now, researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) found that even milder cases of diarrheal diseases can lead to death in young children.
