The author reflects on the clinical indications of human bocavirus (HBoV). HBoV was first described in 3% of nasopharyngeal aspirates (NPAs). It was noted at the time that HBoV may have an association with enteritis that could be addressed by testing human feces for HBoV. Furthermore, HBoV has also been detected in 9% of 527 fecal samples from children with gastroenteritis and in 8% of 520 NPAs from children with suspected acute respiratory tract infection (ARTI).
