Epidemiologic Notes and Reports Update: Enterovirus Surveillance -- United States, 1983

Through October 1983, the pattern of U.S. enterovirus isolates reported to CDC remains similar to that reported through August (1). Coxsackievirus B5 remains the most commonly reported nonpolio enterovirus isolate (347/1,415, 25% of the total), followed by echovirus 11 (128 isolates), echovirus 24 (122), echovirus 30 (117), and echovirus 20 (109) (Table 4). Sufficient isolates were reported from six regions to examine temporal patterns of isolation. For four of these, the number of enterovirus isolates (including Coxsackievirus B5), were increasing through August. In the Mid-Atlantic region, the peak occurred in July, while in the West South Central region, enterovirus isolates peaked in June.

The distribution of ages and diagnoses reported for the patients from whom the isolates were taken has not changed substantially from the previous report.
