Rhinoviruses have been isolated from the serum of two infants at necropsy. Failure to isolate viruses from ten other sera from infants who yielded rhinoviruses from their respiratory tracts suggests that true rhinoviraemia occurs rarely, and is infrequently associated with rhinovirus infections, both clinical and subclinical, and death. It is suggested that this is the first report of isolations of human rhinoviruses from the blood.
