Adenoviruses

  • Hjordis M. Foy

Abstract

Adenoviruses derived their name from the fact that they were first isolated from adenoid tissues (tonsils) and have a certain affinity for lymph glands, where they may remain latent for years. They also invade the respiratory tract, the gastrointestinal tract, and the conjunctiva. In the respiratory tract, they may cause a variety of clinical manifestations ranging from pharyngitis to bronchitis, croup, and pneumonia. Adenovirus infections are widely distributed and common. Most infections occur in childhood.
