The aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence of rotavirus disease in children <5 years old in Tirana, Albania, and to monitor and characterize the rotavirus genotypes. Rotavirus was detected in 21 % of samples, more frequently in children under 2 years of age, which accounted for 80.8 % of all positive cases. Among all rotavirus-positive samples collected, G4P(8) was the most prevalent genotype (38 %), followed by G1P(8) (36.6 %). The use of safe and effective rotavirus vaccines for the prevention of severe diarrhoea and the reduction of treatment costs will be of great importance for Albania.
