II. Epidemiology

  1. Outbreaks related to contaminated swimming pools or shared pool towels
    1. Consider as cause with outbreaks in young children

III. Symptoms

  1. Fever
    1. Peaks to 103-104 F (39.4-40.0 C)
  2. Chills
  3. Myalgias
  4. Sore Throat

IV. Signs

  1. Conjunctivitis
    1. Most common cause of Viral Conjunctivitis in children
    2. Unilateral follicular Conjunctivitis is most common
    3. Associated with Adenovirus Pharyngitis in 30-50% of cases
  2. Pharyngitis
    1. Tonsillar exudates may be present
  3. Diarrhea
    1. More prolonged course than Rotavirus

VI. Course

  1. Clears in 4-5 days

Definition (NCI_CDISC) Any viral organism that can be assigned to the family Adenoviridae.
Definition (NCI) A group of DNA containing viruses which infect mammals and are capable of causing respiratory disease, including one form of the common cold.
Definition (NCI_NCI-GLOSS) A member of a family of viruses that can cause infections in the respiratory tract, eye, and gastrointestinal tract. Forms of adenoviruses that do not cause disease are used in gene therapy. They carry genes that may fix defects in cells or kill cancer cells.
Definition (MSH) A family of non-enveloped viruses infecting mammals (MASTADENOVIRUS) and birds (AVIADENOVIRUS) or both (ATADENOVIRUS). Infections may be asymptomatic or result in a variety of diseases.
Definition (CSP) nonenveloped, ds-DNA in single linear molecule, at least 10 polypeptides, assembly of virus particle in nucleus of usually one host, transmission by direct or indirect contact with urine or feces in throat or eye.
Definition (PDQ) One of a number of genetically-engineered adenoviruses designed to insert a gene of interest into a eukaryotic cell where the gene of interest is subsequently expressed. Unlike most other vectors, adenovirus vectors have the ability to infect post-mitotic cells. Thus, these agents are especially useful for gene transfer into neuronal cells.
