Adenovirus Infection Overview

What is an adenovirus infection?
A person with an adenovirus infection usually has a viral infection of the respiratory tract. This will often manifest as a common cold, bronchitis, croup, or less commonly, adenovirus pneumonia. Adenovirus can cause viral infections in other areas of the body such as the intestines (viral gastroenteritis), the eyes (viral conjunctivitis), and rash (viral exanthem). Adenovirus infections are usually self-limiting and do not require treatment.
