Adenoviruses infect mucous membranes, including – on rare occasions – the urethra. Adenoviruses should therefore be considered as yet another cause of chlamydia-negative non-gonococcal urethritis. The following case illustrates the dilemma posed in a patient with conjunctivitis and urethritis. 
Male non‐gonococcal urethritis: From microbiological etiologies to demographic and clinical features
To detect microorganisms responsible for male acute urethritis and to define the microbiology of non‐gonococcal urethritis.
Adenovirus urethritis and concurrent conjunctivitis: a case series and review of the literature
The focus of this review concerns the identification of specific sexual practices, symptoms, signs and any serotypes that seem more commonly associated with such adenovirus infections. Expand
The urethral smear as a tool in diagnosing adenovirus-induced urethritis
A patient with symptoms of conjunctivitis, meatitis and urethritis was diagnosed with adenovirus, and the urethral smear revealed almost exclusively monocytes microscopically, raising the suspicion of a viral aetiology. Expand
When should adenoviral non-gonococcal urethritis be suspected? Two case reports.
Extending the search to Adenovirus in sexually active men with dysuria, scant discharge in addition to meatitis or conjunctivitis, should be a useful approach improving the authors' understanding about adenoviral NGU, and especially avoiding or stopping unnecessary empirical antibiotic therapy.

Nongonococcal urethritis: New views through the prism of modern molecular microbiology
It is now clear that Mycoplasma genitalium accounts for a significant proportion of nonchlamydial nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) cases and adenovirus should be added to the list of viral causes of NGU. Expand
Characteristics of Acute Nongonococcal Urethritis in Men Differ by Sexual Preference
ABSTRACT Nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) is a common clinical syndrome, but no etiological agent is identified in a significant proportion of cases. Whether the spectrum of pathogens differs betweenExpand
[Experimental evaluation of the Sysmex UF-1000i for ruling out non-gonococcal urethritis].
The Sysmex UF1000i is capable of improving the efficiency of NGU presumptive diagnosis, providing results in a few minutes, with a high negative predictive value and high values of sensitivity. Expand


Adenovirus and non-gonococcal urethritis
A case report of 6 men who were diagnosed with NGU caused by adenovirus infection is presented, along with a review of the relevant literature, with the aim of improving clinical recognition of this pathogen. Expand
Adenovirus types 2, 8, and 37 associated with genital infections in patients attending a sexually transmitted disease clinic
Virus cultures on approximately 7,000 patients attending a sexually transmitted disease clinic or other health department clinics for the evaluation of genital ulcers, urethritis, or conjunctivitis found Adenoviruses, particularly type 37, may be a sexually transmissible cause of genital urethral and conjunctival specimens.

Oral Sex as a Risk Factor for ChIamydia‐Negative Ureaplasma‐Negative Nongonococcal Urethritis
It is concluded that insertive oral sex can be an important risk factor in the development of nongonnococcal urethritis in which the microbial agent is still unknown. Expand
