Non-polio enterovirus infections cause symptoms and signs such as sneezing, mouth blisters, and fever. Symptoms and signs of EV-D68 infection include rash, cough, and breathing problems. From 2006 to 2009, 322 neonates were included within the voluntary, passive enterovirus surveillance system. In 81 patients (25%) an enterovirus was detected via RT-PCR. The yearly frequency of infections was between 8 and 21. In 58 of 322 specimens (18%) serotyping was possible.
There is no specific treatment for non-polio enterovirus infection. People with mild illness caused by non-polio enterovirus infection typically only need symptom treatment. They usually recover completely. However, some illnesses caused by non-polio enteroviruses can be severe enough to require hospitalization the vast majority of cases of non-polio enterovirus infection do not cause symptoms or cause mild illness with an excellent prognosis.
