We previously described isolation of a potentially new reovirus strain from the central nervous system of an 8-week-old female infant with a history of active varicella, oral thrush, hypoalbuminemia, intermittent fevers, diarrhea and feeding intolerance [Hermann et al., Ped. Inf. Dis J. 23, 373 (2004)]. This reovirus strain was tentatively identified as a member of the serotype 2 group by virus neutralization and RNA-gel electrophoresis studies and has been named type 2 Winnipeg (T2W).
