dc.description.abstractAn unusually high number of positive adenovirus stool antigen tests were observed in neonatal samples from a large tertiary referral unit over a 10-week period, prompting the declaration of an outbreak and escalation of infection control precautions. Subsequent testing of original samples by alternative methods revealed a series of false-positive results. This is the first adenovirus pseudo-outbreak to be reported in the United Kingdom and the first to involve the Proflow Rotavirus-Adenovirus Combi test.
