This unwieldy group includes old enemies like mumps and measles virus, respiratory syncytial and parainfluenza viruses, and others like rinderpest and canine distemper virus better known to veterinarians.
Viruses that have been identified as causing respiratory illness include respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza A and B, adenovirus, rhinoviruses and parainfluenza viruses 1, 2 and 3.

Human parainfluenza viruses (HPIVs) are enveloped, negative-sense RNA viruses that belong to the family Paramyxoviridae for their poor growth in embryonated eggs and different antigenic sites from myxoviridae.
Targets included human rhinovirus, enterovirus, influenza A and B viruses, parainfluenza viruses 1-4, respiratory syncytial virus A and B, adenovirus, bocavirus, human metapneumovirus, human coronavirus OC43, and human coronavirus 229E/NL63.
The human parainfluenza viruses (HPIVs) account for a significant proportion of lower respiratory tract infections in children, where their rates of detection vary with pathology (respiratory infection of the upper or lower tract) and with the investigation setting (outpatient units or hospital wards).
Overall, 24.9% of the children had influenza, 28.2% had no virus detected, 14.5% had rhinovirus, 11.6% had respiratory syncytial virus, and the remainder had human metapneumovirus, adenovirus, or parainfluenza viruses. Among children with influenza, the risk of developing pneumonia was 7.6 times higher with the H1N1 strain than with other strains, Dr.
