Diagnosis of viral diseases -- today and tomorrow.

Abstract

Although there is more basic knowledge about viruses than about any other living unit, clinical application of the knowledge has not kept pace. Methods of diagnosis have proliferated, but the question remains: which of the 500 viruses now known to humans is most likely to be causing your patient's symptom? The patient's age and immunologic status and the season of the year all may be indicative factors.
