Adenovirus is the commonest cause of viral conjunctivitis
Adenovirus is a recognised cause of haemorrhagic cystitis. It occurs both in healthy children and immunocompromised individuals. It should be suspected when these individuals experience an acute onset of haematuria plus symptoms of cystitis and when a bacterial culture is negative. The disease can be confirmed by culturing a urine specimen.
