Answer

Severe follicular keratoconjunctivitis has been reported (conjunctiva may be granular). Hemorrhagic conjunctivitis develops in some cases.

Palpebral edema is a finding.

Preauricular lymphadenopathy is not common but is a pathognomonic finding with adenovirus infection.

Visual haziness or impairment resulting from keratitis or corneal involvement may develop and may persist for months to years.
