Surveillance by the Unexplained Deaths and Critical Illnesses Project (UNEX) uncovered a novel presentation of adenovirus type 3 infection that satisfied the criteria for toxic shock-like syndrome in a 28-year-old immunocompetent man. Adenovirus may be a cause of toxic shock syndrome; surveillance systems such as UNEX may uncover additional causes of this and other clinically defined infectious syndromes.
