Gastroenteritis

Gastroenteritis is inflammation or infection of the gastrointestinal or digestive tract. The digestive tract is the system of organs that take in food, digest it to extract energy and nutrients and expels the remaining waste in the stool. The main parts of the gastrointestinal tract are the esophagus (which runs from the throat to stomach), the stomach, the small intestines, the large intestines (or colon), and the rectum.
