echovirus

 [ek´o-vi″rus]
a species of viruses of the genus enterovirus; the name was derived from the first letters of the description “enteric cytopathogenic human orphan.” At the time of the isolation of the viruses the diseases they caused were not known, hence the term “orphan,” but it is now known that they cause many different types of human disease, especially viral meningitis, diarrhea, and various respiratory diseases.

ECHO vi·rus

an enterovirus from a large group of unrelated viruses belonging to the Picornaviridae, isolated from humans; although many inapparent infections occur, certain serotypes are associated with fever and aseptic meningitis, and some appear to cause mild respiratory disease.

In the same sample 5, echovirus 9 was also identified.

Before 2002, echovirus 9 had not been the predominant enterovirus since 1995, when it accounted for 45.1% of reported enterovirus detections, and echovirus 30 had not been widespread since 1998, when it accounted for 45.9% of reported detections (7-9).
First, although the cases of enterovirus-like illness were consistent clinically with echovirus infection and were linked temporally and epidemically to echovirus 9 aseptic meningitis cases, no laboratory confirmation was attempted.
Excluding the reports with "unknown" serotypes, six serotypes (echovirus 6, 7, 11, and 30, and coxsackievirus A9 and B4) were among the 10 most frequently detected serotypes each year, and echovirus 9 and coxsackievirus B5 were among the 10 most frequently detected serotypes for 3 of the 4 years.
Echovirus 30 was isolated most frequently (19 isolates [25%]), followed by coxsackievirus A9 (eight isolates [10%]), coxsackievirus B2 (eight isolates [10%]), echovirus t (five isolates [6%]), echovirus 6 (five isolates [6%]), and coxsackievirus B5, echovirus 7, echovirus 9, and echovirus 11 (four isolates each [15%]).
Of all 1260 NPEV isolates reported for 1989, the six most common were coxsackievirus B5 (21%), echovirus 9 (20%), echovirus 11 (10%), coxsackievirus B2 (6%), echovirus 6 (5%), and coxsackievirus A16 (5%).
Coxsackievirus B5 was isolated most frequently (16 isolates), followed by echovirus 6 (two isolates), and coxsackievirus B3, coxsackievirus A3, and echovirus 9 (one each); 10 isolates were reported as untyped enteroviruses.
