Abstract

The authors examined the nasal excretion of newborns and infants for the demonstration of viruses using negative-stain-electron-microscopic technique. The nasal cavity was rinsed with physiologic saline solution and the latter was examined. The negative stain technique is a relatively quick method for the demonstration of viruses to support the suspicion of the viral etiology of a disease until serological diagnosis is available. The authors demonstrated Orthomyxoviruses, Adenoviruses, and Herpes-viruses in the nasal cavity.
