ABSTRACT

Hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) is an acute viral infection occurring mostly in infants and children. Enterovirus 71 (EV71) infection mostly occurs in children < 5 years of age. Severe cases, however, are usually encountered in children under the age of 3 years, and exceedingly rare in teenagers > 14 years and adults. In this report, we present the case of an 11-year-old boy presenting with a hand, foot and mouth disease typical of HFMD.
