[Analysis on the epidemiological and genetic characteristics of enterovirus type 71 and Coxsackie A16 virus infection in Jiangsu, China Zhonghua Liu Having the coxsackievirus slightly increases the risk of miscarriage or stillbirth, as is the case with any infection during pregnancy.
HFMD is more risky if the woman acquires the virus near the end of her pregnancy. If you are exposed to coxsackie virus during pregnancy chances are very small that the fetus will be affected. Specific preventive medications are not available for most viral diseases such as coxsackievirus and hand foot and mouth disease (HFMD). analysis and serotyping showed Coxsackie A16 virus. The mother had an uneventful pregnancy 15 months later. Coxsackievirus infections in pregnant mothers are often Oct 03, 2005 Although it sounds similar to the footandmouth disease cattle, sheep, and swine can get, the two diseases are not related.
Coxsackie virus is caused by several different viruses, the most common of which is coxsackievirus A16. Occasionally, other strains of coxsackievirus A or enterovirus 71 cause it.
Coxsackievirus is a member of a family of viruses called enteroviruses. Enteroviruses are made up of a single strand of ribonucleic acid Coxsackievirus A16 (CVA16) causes the majority of HFMD infections in the U.
S. It usually occurs in children (age 10 and under), but adults can also develop the condition. This childhood disease should not be confused with the" foot and mouth disease" usually found in animals with hooves (for example, cattle, pigs, and deer). Coxsackie (usually A16; rarely, A5 or 10) virus infections are often subclinical.
However, the World Health Organization reported one outbreak in 2008 in China involving a total of 1884 cases, including 20 deaths, due to enterovirus EV71. Does a prior infection with Coxsackie virus make a person immune? Specific immunity can occur, but a second episode is possible from a different strain of Coxsackie virus. What is the treatment? There is no specific treatment. Treatment is aimed at fever control and maintaining good oral hydration.
There is no vaccine to prevent coxsackievirus infection. Hand washing is the best protection. Remind everyone in your family to wash their hands well and often, especially after using the toilet, after changing a diaper, before meals, and before preparing food.
