Adenoviruses: DVRD (Excerpt)
Adenoviruses most commonly cause respiratory illness; however,
depending on the infecting serotype, they may also cause various other
illnesses, such as gastroenteritis, conjunctivitis, cystitis, and rash
illness. Symptoms of respiratory illness caused by adenovirus infection
range from the common cold syndrome to pneumonia, croup, and bronchitis.
Patients with compromised immune systems are especially susceptible to
severe complications of adenovirus infection. Acute respiratory disease
(ARD), first recognized among military recruits during World War II, can
be caused by adenovirus infections during conditions of crowding and stress.
