The Caliciviridae family are a family of viruses, members of Class IV of the Baltimore scheme. They are positive-sense, single stranded RNA which is non-segmented. The caliciviruses have been found in a number of organisms such as humans, cattle, pigs, chickens, reptiles, dolphins and amphibians.

The Caliciviridae family include the following genera: Genus Lagovirus (type species: Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus); Genus Nebovirus;Genus Norovirus (type species: Norwalk virus); Genus Sapovirus (type species: Sapporo virus); Genus Vesivirus (type species: Vesicular exanthema of swine virus)

Calicivirus infections commonly cause acute gastroenteritis, which is the inflammation of the stomach and intestines (e.g. the Norwalk Virus). Symptoms can include vomiting and diarrhea. These symptoms emerge after an incubation time of 2 days and the symptoms only generally last for 3 days. Most calicivirus infections do not call for medical attention, but those who are immunocompromised may need to be hospitalized for rehydration therapy.
