Little-Known Respiratory Infection Sends Many Kids to Hospital
Date:2/14/2013

Vaccine Research Center, and chairman of pediatrics at the Brooklyn Hospital Center, in New York City.

Bromberg said that parents don't need to be any more concerned about this virus than they are about flu or RSV.

Study author Williams agreed and said that by age 5, almost everyone has already had this disease. Each year, its peak activity tends to be from February through April, he said. And, the symptoms are like those of the common cold: runny nose, cough and fever. He said without testing, it's difficult to know what virus someone has, but there isn't a rapid test available for HPMV.

There's also no specific treatment for HPMV. The medications that can help ease symptoms of flu don't help with HPMV.
