Abstract:

If a community exposure to a virulent unknown virus occurs, the challenge for the clinical microbiology laboratory is threefold: (i) management of clinical specimens and/or viral isolates safely and appropriately, (ii) recognition of the agent within the limitations of routine testing, and (iii) rapid notification of the proper authorities about a potential outbreak.

Differential diagnosis of an unknown viral infection

miscellaneous viral exanthema (skin rash) would be caused by infections with viruses such as herpes simplex virus, varicella-zoster virus, enteroviruses or other poxviruses such as the agents of vaccinia and molluscum contagiosum, or poxviruses that can be passed from animals to humans.
