Clinical diagnosis of hand-foot-and-mouth disease is based on the presentation of a low-grade fever with a maculopapular or papulovesicular rash on the hands, soles of the feet, and buttocks, and by painful oral ulcerations. The largest incidence is within the first five years of life, and most cases occur in patients younger than 10 years.
