By Jan Felix Drexler, Klaus Grywna, Andreas Stöcker, Patrícia Silva Almeida, Tereza Cristina Medrado Ribeiro, Monika Eschbach-Bludau, Nadine Petersen, Hugo da Costa Ribeiro and Christian Drosten


Human parechoviruses (HPeVs) were detected by reverse transcription–PCR in 16.1% of 335 stool samples from children <6 years of age with enteritis in Salvador, Brazil. Whole genome sequencing of 1 sample showed a novel HPeV that has been designated as HPeV8
