An Adenovirus antibodies test is used to diagnose an adenovirus infection such as adenoviral respiratory disease.
Adenoviruses are a group of viruses that infect the membranes (tissue linings) of the respiratory tract, the eyes, the intestines, and the urinary tract.
There are several different types of adenovirus and different types cause different symptoms.
Adenoviruses usually cause respiratory illness, they can also cause diarrhoea, conjunctivitis, cystitis, and rashes.
Adenoviral infections affect young children more frequently than adults.
