An outbreak of echovirus type 4 infections and its implications for diagnosis and management in general practice



An outbreak of echovirus type 4 infections and its implications for diagnosis and management in general practice



Journal of Infection 26(3): 321-324



Altogether, 133 patients with Echovirus type 4 infection were studied. Presenting illnesses and reasons for referral to hospital were analyzed. The reason for admission was commonly concern about meningitis, but also an unexplained rash or sore throat. More research is needed in general practice in order to clearly elucidate the spectrum of disease caused by Echoviruses.
