ADENOVIRUS PCR REPLACES ADENOVIRAL CULTURE FOR EYE SWAB AND URINE SPECIMENS ON 02/04/2010

Eye swab application:

Adenovirus is the commonest cause of viral conjunctivitis

Urine application:
Adenovirus is a recognised cause of haemorrhagic cystitis. It occurs both in healthy children and immunocompromised individuals. It should be suspected when these individuals experience an acute onset of haematuria plus symptoms of cystitis and when a bacterial culture is negative. The disease can be confirmed by culturing a urine specimen.
 
Interpretation:
All positive Adenovirus samples are forwarded to a reference laboratory for subtyping. Subtyping results can take up to 6 weeks.
All laboratory results should be interpreted in conjunction with clinical histology or symptomatology.
