Abstract

Adenoviruses are ubiquitous viruses, commonly causing ocular infections. They are also known to cause multisystem infections. External ocular infections caused by adenovirus are most often due to contaminated secretions. We report a patient in whom genitourinary symptoms developed and subsided along with ocular symptoms. Adenovirus was isolated on ocular culture. This is the first reported case of concurrent adenoviral keratitis and hemorrhagic cystitis. Eliciting a history of genitourinary and respiratory symptoms is important in patients with ocular adenoviral infections.
