More than 90% of infections caused by nonpolio entero viruses are asymptomatic or result only in an undifferentiated febrile illness. [1] Symptomatic nonpolio virus infections include the following:

  • Pleurodynia

  • Myopericarditis

  • Acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis (AHC)

  • Nonspecific febrile illness

  • Aseptic meningitis

  • Herpangina

  • Hand-foot-and-mouth disease (HFMD) [2]
