Rhinovirus infections are common in all age groups world-wide, and they occur throughout the year. In this study, we examined 2,689 nasopharyngeal swabs collected in Mongolia during 2008–2013. Human rhinoviruses (HRVs) were detected in 295 (11.0z) samples, and 85 (28.8z) patients were co-infected with other respiratory viruses. HRV was co-detected with bocavirus, human coronavirus, and respiratory syncytial virus in 21 (24.7z), 17 (20.0z), and 14 (16.5z), respectively. We tested 170 (57.6z) of the 295 HRV-positive samples: 117 HRV strains were typed by using the VP4/VP2 method and 53 by using 5'UTR method. We found HVR-A, HVR-C, and HVR-B infections in 80 (47.1z), 76 (44.7z), and 14 (8.2z) samples, respectively.
