Case reports. Intrauterine echovirus type II infection.


The case described herein represents the first laboratory-confirmed case indicating intrauterine infection due to echovirus type II. The virus was recovered from the vagina of the mother and from the blood from the umbilical cord and nasopharynx of an apathetic newborn (all cultures were taken within 60 minutes of birth in the delivery room) with a generalized maculopapular exanthem. When the infant was 15 days of age, results of all laboratory tests and physical examinations were normal.
