Canine adenovirus type 1 and 2 (CAV-1 & CAV-2) are causative agents of infectious canine hepatitis and infectious canine laryngotracheitis, respectively. Both viruses are shed in faeces and urine of the infected or recovered dogs. A total of 75 faecal samples were collected from diarrheic and nondiarrheic dogs referred to the small animal clinics of the Veterinary School, Shiraz University, Iran. Polymerase chain reaction was performed using separately three sets of primers (HA1/HA2, CAVVP1/ CAV-VP2/, and CAV-F1/CAV-R1). The results showed 28 positive samples, including 16 CAV-1 and 12 CAV-2. According to the study, the molecular diagnosis of CAV in faeces could be performed with better results using the primers CAV-VP1/ CAV-VP2 and CAV-F1/ CAV-R1.

    In Kawasaki disease (KD), molecular-based detection of human adenovirus (HAdV) infection is not uncommon, may represent persistence of HAdV-C, and should be interpreted with caution. Together, quantitative polymerase chain reaction and HAdV typing may aid in distinguishing HAdV disease mimicking...
