Picornaviruses, including the rhinoviruses and enteroviruses, are common causes of infections in the developed world and the most common reason for prescribing antibiotics. These ubiquitous pathogens are increasingly being recognized in more serious illnesses, such as sinusitis, exacerbations of asthma, exacerbations of cystic fibrosis, myocarditis, meningitis, and severe neonatal sepsislike disease. Recent advances have improved our ability to diagnosis and treat these infections.
