• Echovirus 11 was recovered from vesicular lesions in two adults. Patient 1 had a severe disseminated vesicular exanthem. Patient 2 had a mild vesicular enanthem. Both were clinically suspected of having herpesvirus hominis lesions. Serologic studies indicate that these viruses were similar to each other and also to the "U" prime strain.
