J Pediatric Infect Dis Soc. 2023 Apr 28;12(4):239-241. doi: 10.1093/jpids/piad018.

Abstract

Our objective was to describe the distribution of rhinovirus (RV) by species and type in both symptomatic and asymptomatic children in a prospective study over multiple years. A large and diverse distribution of RV types was seen among children with and without symptoms. RV-A and RV-C were predominant at all visits.
