Diagnosis of neonatal enterovirus infection by polymerase chain reaction.

Abstract

A 5-hour colorimetric polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay was more sensitive than viral culture in identifying viral infection in initial serum (13/16 vs 5/16; p = 0.008) and urine (10/16 vs 5/16; p = 0.2) specimens from 16 enterovirus-infected newborn infants, and remained more sensitive throughout their illnesses. Combined sensitivity of serum and urine… (More)
