Summary, in English

The genomic characterization of the strain of light cytopathic effect by nucleotide sequence is presented. It was possible to sequence 90% of the strain of light cytopathic effect. A close relationship with Coxsackie A9 was observed. The greatest mutations occurred in the region of the genome that codifies for the structural proteins. Therefore, it may be considered as a variant of Coxsackie A9 never reported before.
