Hand, foot, and mouth disease caused by coxsackievirus A6, Thailand, 2012.
Emerg Infect Dis. 2013 Apr; 19(4):641-3.EI

Abstract

In Thailand, hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) is usually caused by enterovirus 71 or coxsackievirus A16. To determine the cause of a large outbreak of HFMD in Thailand during June-August 2012, we examined patient specimens. Coxsackievirus A6 was the causative agent. To improve prevention and control, causes of HFMD should be monitored.
