Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Sepsis and sepsis-like illness in neonates and infants are serious emergencies. Recently, human parechovirus type 3 (HPeV-3) has been identified as a further etiologic agent of these conditions. We report two unlinked cases of infant HPeV-3 sepsis-like illness whose sources could be traced back to elder siblings with mild gastroenteritis and respiratory symptoms.
