Abstract

Enteroviruses can be responsible for nosocomial outbreaks in nurseries andneonatal units, even during non-epidemic periods, from an index-patient, infected medical staff, or visitors. The most commonly encountered disease is meningitis. Like pneumonia, it lengthens hospital stay. Myocarditis and severe generalized infections with haemorrhagic diasthesis are responsible for a high mortality rate. Early diagnosis may be delayed. Hence the possibility of an enterovirus infection should be systematically suspected and prospective investigations performed (stools, throat swab). In cases of meningitis, enteroviral genome detection in CSF by polymerase chain reaction allows for a rapid diagnosis and, in addition, a rapid alert to prevent nosocomial infection spreading. Extreme vigilance is required if nosocomial infections are to be prevented in nurseries and neonatal units. This includes respect of strict hygiene measures, meticulous handwashing, cleaning and disinfection of surfaces, and efficient virucidal products.
