Adenoviruses (Ads) 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. There are seven subgenera with 41 species (previously serotypes) (Table 1). Symptoms of infection and epidemiologic patterns vary between subgenera and even for different species. Adenoviruses invade primarily the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts and the conjunctiva. They may cause a variety of clinical manifestations ranging from pharyngitis to bronchitis, croup, pneumonia, and diarrhea. Some species invade the urinary tract or central nervous system or cause systemic infections. Adenovirus infections are widely distributed and common. Most infections occur in childhood.
