It had also been recognized before the discovery of adenoviruses that the so-called fox encephalitis and dog hepatitis were caused by the same virus. Also, the first avian adenovirus (chicken embryo lethal orphan (CELO) virus) isolate had erroneously been obtained when bovine samples of lumpy skin disease were examined for an infectious etiological agent by inoculation into embryonated eggs. The actual discovery of human adenoviruses was the result of targeted investigations into the etiology of an acute, respiratory illness frequently affecting young military recruits in the USA.
