Coxsackieviruses (CV) are highly prevalent pathogens with the ability to cause fatal diseases in humans. Although Coxsackie B virus (CVB) infections are relatively benign in adults, they can be fatal in children and have been shown to be the cause of meningoencephalitis, myocarditis, hepatitis, and some cases of diabetes.
