Hand-Foot And Mouth Disease (Hfmk)

The hand-foot and mouth disease is a febrile illness that is usually caused by coxsackievirus A16, enterovirus 71 or other enteroviruses. The infection leads to a vesicular rash on the hands, feet and oral mucous membranes. Atypical hand-foot-and-mouth disease due to coxsackievirus A6 often leads to high fever with papulovesicular lesions that progress to vesicobullous lesions and bullae, which are widely distributed in the body.

The disease occurs in young children most often. The course is similar to a Herpangin
