J Med Virol. 1982;9(4):267-71. doi: 10.1002/jmv.1890090404.

Abstract

A prospective study was carried out during 1 year in order to correlate intussusceptions in childhood with a viral infection. A virus was incriminated in 50% of the 64 patients in this survey. Adenovirus infections remain predominant as compared to rotavirus infections.
