Abstract

In October 2009, our laboratory was contacted by a Brazilian Public Health organization regarding a severe community outbreak of an acute exanthematic and febrile disease in the Brazilian Amazon that primarily affected children. A total of 44 patients with febrile disease were identified by the local public health system, 37 of whom were children between 1 and 9 years of age. Molecular virological and phylogenetic characterization revealed that enterovirus B was the etiological agent of this outbreak, which was characterized by a clinical presentation known as herpangina.
