Adenoviruses are widely spread viruses causing infections related mainly to children. Contact with the pathogen may result in the presence of either immunoglobulin (Ig) A or IgG antibodies in the serum. The take the form of rhinitis or abacterial pharyngitis, depending on the type as well as presumably on the disposition of the patient. They may also develop into acute, influenza like infections or even, especially in small children, into a potentially fatal pneumonia The adenovirus is an ubiquitous pathogen of humans and animals. Adenoviruses are characterized by location inside the cell nucleus, common complement-fixing antigens and marked stability to environmental effects. Adenoviruses are endemic in all populations throughout the year. The infection is spread both through the aerial-droplet route and the routes characteristic for intestinal infections. The incubation period is between five and seven days. Adenoviruses mainly infest respiratory and intestinal mucosa, but also the cornea. They are accumulated in the epithelial cells and regional lymph nodes. Adenoviruses cause the widest variety of illnesses of the known respiratory viruses. The adenovirus infection is the most frequently caused viral disease of the respiratory tract among preschool children. Acute diseases of the upper respiratory tract occur predominantly. Pneumonia is the most severe form of adenoviral infection occurring mostly in infants below the age of one. Adenoviruses also cause outbreaks of swimmingpool-associated pharyngoconjunctival fever in the summer and epidemics of kerato-conjunctivitis of both children and adults. The intestinal form of adenoviral infection occurs mostly in children below the age of one. An acute adenoviral infection can be detected by virus isolation and/or serology.
