Pathogen description: Adenoviruses represent the largest nonenveloped viruses. They are able to be transported through the endosome. They are about 70 to 90 nm in size, nonenveloped icosahedral viruses that are made from up to 252 capsomeres containing double-standard DNA. Infection is usually transmitted by droplets of respiratory or ocular secretions, by alimentary transfer or sexual intercourse and by the contact with contaminated water (the virus is able to live out of the body at temperature 20C and lower for a few weeks). The sites of the first reproduction are most often epithelial cells of the conjunctiva, nasopharynx and intestine. Adenovirus infection is clinically manifested by fever, upper respiratory tract infections, tonsillitis, laryngitis, bronchitis and pneumonia.
