Adenoviral Disease

If adenoviral disease is often noted the development of follicular or membranous conjunctivitis (sometimes unilateral), kerato-conjunctivitis and lymphadenopathy in combination with a cold, pharyngitis and bronchitis, the advent of atypical pneumonia ("dumb" or giving scant Physical data and detects mainly X-ray), the longer the feverish reaction (sometimes up to 2-3 weeks), and the children – gastrointestinal syndrome. Intoxication is expressed less clearly than the flu. In the presence of measles should be considered conjunctivitis, a significant puffiness face, the reaction of peripheral lymph nodes, spots Belsky – Filatov – Koplik, the appearance of the rash pyatnistopapuleznoy behind the ears and neck with a 3-4th day of fever. Similar to the flu cause the clinical picture of many viruses are poorly understood (Eaton agent, rhinoviruses, reoviruses, parainfluenza, etc.). The differential diagnosis of influenza with these influenza-like illness is difficult because of the complexity complexity and inaccessibility of the practitioners of the virological investigations. Treatment. With the flu need to be in calf mode during the febrile period. For the treatment of influenza flu dry whey used in combination with sulfanilamidnymi drugs (0.5 g) by injection or retraction of the nose 2-3 times a day until the termination of acute effects.

For inhalation and instillation into the nose convalescent serum is applied to 1 ml 3-4 times daily for 2-4 days. In the primary influenza pneumonia useful intramuscular 2 – 5 ml of influenza serum. In early childhood shows convalescent serum therapy by 10-30 ml IM 1-2 times or gamma globulin to 0.3 ml per 1 kg of weight. Promising for the treatment of antimetabolites (IFN), preventing the synthesis of virus in the cell, in combination with other therapeutic agents. In severe and complicated bacterial infection during the influenza demonstrates the use of sulfonamides and antibiotics (penicillin, streptomycin, chloramphenicol, tetracycline antibiotics). Course duration is determined depending on the therapeutic effect (usually 3-5 days).
