Coxsackieviruses can also cause several different symptoms that affect different body parts, including: Hand, foot, and mouth disease, a type of coxsackievirus syndrome, causes painful red blisters in the throat and on the tongue, gums, hard palate, inside of the cheeks, and the .

The picornaviruses are small (22 to 30 nm) nonenveloped, single-stranded RNA viruses with cubic symmetry. The virus capsid is composed of 60 protein subunits, each consisting of four poly-peptides VP1–VP4. Because they contain no essential lipids, they are ether resistant. They replicate in the cytoplasm. The picornaviruses that affect humans are the enteroviruses, found primarily in the gut.   Coxsackie viruses are a group of RNA viruses with over 20 serotypes; depending on specific viral characteristics, these serotypes are further divided into groups A and ion is associated with a wide range of symptoms, which are dependent on the exact serotype. Hand, foot, and mouth disease and herpangina are commonly caused by group A coxsackie viruses, while .

Coxsackie viruses: A large group of PICORNAVIRUS ENTEROVIRUSES of a type similar to the poliomyelitis virus. They cause HERPANGINA, BORNHOLM DISEASE (epidemic pleurodynia), MYOCARDITIS, PERICARDITIS and MENINGITIS. The group is named after Coxsackie, New York. Coxsackievirus. A large subgroup of the genus Enterovirus in the family Picornaviridae. The coxsackieviruses produce various human illnesses, including aseptic meningitis, herpang.

Coxsackievirus infections occur most often in young children, usually during summer and fall. Coxsackieviruses are present both in the stool and in the respiratory secretions. They can spread by fecal–oral transmission, droplet transmission, and by contact transmission.

Coxsackieviruses are a common cause of infection in adults and children. The spectrum of disease caused by these viruses ranges from very mild to life-threatening.; No vaccine is available, and there is no drug that specifically kills the virus.

This monograph reviews information published since on the group B coxsackieviruses (CVB), a large and important group of human enteroviruses. The CVB were discovered in the midth century, during the search for other poliovirus types, and within a very few years of this discovery, the CVB had been implicated as causes of human.
