Diarrhoea refers to frequent passage of loose watery stools. Acute diarrhoea often called as acute gastroenteritis  is particularly a leading cause of mortality in children. Most diarrhoeas which cause dehydration are loose or watery. Cholera is one example of loose or watery diarrhoea. Only a small proportion of all loose or watery diarrhoeas are due to cholera.
