Serologic diagnosis of adenovirus infection. At least 12 types of adenovirus have been associated with illnesses such as noninfluenzal acute respiratory disease, pneumonia, epidemic keratoconjunctivitis, acute febrile pharyngitis, and acute hemorrhagic cystitis. Asymptomatic infections can make serologic responses difficult to interpret.
