Restriction endonucleases were used to show the excretion of an identical strain of cytomegalovirus (CMV) by two brothers over a 2 1/2-yr period. The same enzymes were used to show that the younger brother, case report, excreted an adenovirus over at least a 3-mo period. We are unable to determine the contribution of each virus to this child's clinical picture; however, this is the first report of a prolonged excretion of an adenovirus associated with CMV excretion in an immunocompetent host.
