  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Adenovirus type 7 (Ad7) is known to cause pharyngoconjunctival fever, but may occasionally cause conjunctivitis. We evaluated the clinical manifestations of 12 cases from which Ad7 was isolated during 1995/96. The conjunctivitis was generally mild. Keratopathy was present in 25%, periauricular lymphadenopathy in 42% and systemic involvement in 42%. The ocular features simulated conjunctivitis due to Ad3. The genome type in 2 cases was Ad7c.
