This report describes a fatal case of cerebral edema caused by adenovirus in a previously healthy 18-month-old infant who developed skin rash, pulmonary congestion, and fever and who died 6 days later. Adenovirus hexon gene sequences were detected in brain tissue and brain tissue cultures. The virus was typed as adenovirus 5.
