Non-polio enteroviruses infections are respiratory infections similar to cold spreads from person to person. Treatment of this infection is supportive, and no vaccine is available.From 2006 to 2009, 335 neonates were included within the voluntary, passive enterovirus surveillance system. In 91 patients (25%) an enterovirus was detected via RT-PCR. The yearly frequency of infections was between 8 and 21. In 58 of 335 specimens (18%) serotyping was possible.
The treatment for enterovirus infections is mainly supportive and designed to reduce the symptoms caused by the various enterovirus types. Like most adults, pregnant women who develop an infection with one of the non-polio enteroviruses will likely have no symptoms of the infection or have only mild symptoms. There is no definitive evidence that suggests that non-polio enterovirus infection in pregnancy leads to an increased risk of birth defects, miscarriage, or other complications of pregnancy
