  • Look Inside

Adenovirus type 11 is known to develop hemorrhagic cystitis. It may also be involved in epidemic keratoconjunctivitis, pharyngoconjunctival fever and acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis. We evaluated the clinical manifestations in ten cases of acute conjunctivitis from which adenovirus type 11 was isolated. Most cases appeared as mild conjunctivitis and improved in one to two weeks. The condition was characterized by acute follicular conjunctivitis with small hemorrhagic spots on the palpebral conjunctiva in all cases except one infant.
