Abstract

Non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) is a common problem presenting to sexual health clinics that is usually managed empirically. In many cases the aetiology is never clearly established or further investigated. Adenovirus has been identified in the past as an occasional cause of NGU but little has been written about its clinical presentation. We present a case report of 6 men who were diagnosed with NGU caused by adenovirus infection, along with a review of the relevant literature, with the aim of improving clinical recognition of this pathogen.
