A method is described for examining viruses in faeces by direct electron microscopy using negative staining. [...] Key Result Small particles in the range of sizes covering parvoviruses and enteroviruses were found about as frequently in each group. Many of these were probably bacteriophages. Many bacteriophages with tails of various sizes and lengths were found. Adenoviruses were found in five of eight patients from whom they were isolated.Expand Abstract
