Infection with a rare G3P rotavirus A strain was identified in an immunosuppressed patient in Italy. The strain showed a P viral protein 4 gene and a complete AU-1-like genomic constellation. Phylogenetic analyses showed high nucleotide identity between this strain and G3P rotavirus A strains from Asia, indicating possible reassortment events.
