In this study, we analyzed the course of the disease in 79 patients diagnosed with Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) and catarrhal angina. In order to verify the diagnosis, a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of blood serum and feces of patients was carried out to identify enteroviruses. According to the data obtained, the PCR diagnostic method was of particular value from the standpoint of early etiological confirmation of the diagnosis of enterovirus infection (EVI), with the aim of the most complete identification of forms without affecting the central nervous infection (CNS). The most frequent forms of ARI of similar enteroviral diseases in the clinic so reminiscent of "small forms" of enterovirus infections were "low fever" or "summer flu", while the typical form of EVI - herpangina - was found with the lowest frequency, but had the most severe course.
