(en'tĕr-ō-vī'rŭs),
A large and diverse group of viruses (family Picornaviridae) that includes poliovirus types 1 to 3, coxsackieviruses A and B, echoviruses, and the enteroviruses identified since 1969 and assigned type numbers. They are transient inhabitants of the alimentary canal and are stable at low pH.

Enterovirus

/En·tero·vi·rus/ (en´ter-o-vi″rus) enteroviruses; a genus of viruses of the family Picornaviridae that preferentially inhabit the intestinal tract, with infection usually asymptomatic or mild. Human enteroviruses were originally classified as polioviruses, coxsackieviruses, or echoviruses.

enterovirus

A genus of picornavirus comprised of more than 100 closely related viruses–eg, coxsackievirus, echoviruses, polioviruses and others, which cause gastroenteritis and viral encephalopathy. See Virus.

Enterovirus

a genus of the family Picornaviridae. The genus includes the important animal pathogens of porcine poliomyelitis (Teschen disease), possibly SMEDI disease (see porcine parvovirus), avian encephalomyelitis (epidemic tremor), duckling hepatitis, turkey hepatitis. Equine and bovine enteroviruses of doubtful pathogenicity have also been isolated. Human enteroviruses, e.g. Coxsackie virus, ECHO virus, are also isolated occasionally from animals without appearing to cause disease.

enterovirus

a virus in the genus Enterovirus.

enterovirus encephalitis
several porcine enteroviruses cause highly transmissible encephalitides. See also porcine viral encephalomyelitis (Teschen disease, Talfan disease, poliomyelitis suum).
