Epidemic myalgia in adults associated with human parechovirus type 3 infection, Yamagata, Japan, 2008.
By conducting virus isolation, RT-PCR, and serologic examination, we confirmed an outbreak of epidemic myalgia among adults in Yonezawa, Yamagata, Japan, during June-August 2008 was associated with HPeV3 infection.
However, we succeeded in whole-sequence analysis using a stool specimen from case-patient 11, which suggests the failure to isolate HPeV3 was not a result of low viral load in the specimens from the patients with epidemic myalgia.
