Adenovirus
  • Associated with marked lymphoid hyperplasia leading to intussusception, usually in children
  • Viral nuclear inclusions: basophilic nuclei with indistinct nuclear membranes (Cowdry type B, smudge cells) and, less commonly, eosinophilic inclusions surrounded by halos and distinct nuclear membranes (Cowdry type-A)
  • Immunohistochemistry, PCR, and in situ hybridization helpful in diagnosis (Infect Dis Clin North Am 2010;24:995)
