Patient Comments: Adenovirus 14 - Signs and Symptoms

What were the signs and symptoms associated with adenovirus 14 in you, a friend, or relative?

Comment from: Janeke, 3-6 Female (Caregiver) Published: December 16

My 3 year old was diagnosed with adenovirus and was hospitalized for 3 days after severe high fever for 7 days. The virus spread in her bladder, eyes, respiratory system and started to develop into meningitis. She was so ill, had not eaten for 5 days, was crying a lot and the fever was 39.9 at most times; no fever medication could reduce it. She has been placed on drip with aggressive antibiotics to help break down the virus.

My brother passed away from adenovirus 14 in April of 2008. He got sick and went to the doctor. He was told it was a viral infection, and to go home and rest. He went home, jumped in the shower and dropped dead. He was a healthy 50 year old man; only about 10 people contracted this and died in 2008 as far as I was told.

I had a rapid onset of muscle aches, chills, and a sore throat, along with a persistent hacking nonproductive cough and fatigue. All symptoms except the cough were gone in about 10 days.
