The conjunctiva is a mucosal surface that is a primary site of viral infection. Human adenoviruses (HAdVs) are the most frequent cause of acute viral conjunctivitis worldwide. Among the seven groups of human HAdVs (A–G), group D viruses (e.g., HAdV-8, -19, and -37) cause severe, prolonged inflammation involving the cornea (epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC)), whereas conjunctivitis caused by other HAdV groups are self-limiting and the inflammation is mild. Why the degree of ocular inflammation differs by adenoviruses is yet unclear. Natural killer (NK) cells are one of the first lymphocytes to respond to viral infection. They are also key in promoting and regulating adaptive immunity through cytokine production and crosstalk with dendritic cells and T cells.
