Adenovirus infection in Child
Many infections are asymptomatic, and patients can shed virus for a time even after symptoms have resolved. In immunocompromised patients, infection can be severe and lead to organ failure or graft dysfunction. A specific viral diagnosis is often not necessary in immunologically normal hosts, as the disease is usually self-limited. The organism can be isolated using viral tissue culture. Viral DNA can be identified using the polymerase chain reaction.
