Hospitalization of Jewish and Bedouin infants in Southern Israel for bronchiolitis caused by respiratory syncytial virus.
We conducted a prospective study to determine the clinical picture and impact of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) on hospitalization for acute bronchiolitis of pediatric patients less than 2 years of age belonging to two different ethnic groups in Southern Israel: Jews and Bedouins.
All patients younger than 2 years of age hospitalized for bronchiolitis during a typical RSV season were enrolled.
During the study period 120 patients with bronchiolitis were hospitalized, and 83 (69%) were RSV-positive.
Their age ranged from 20 days to 9 months.
Fifty-five percent of all patients with RSV bronchiolitis were <=3 months old and 92% were <=6 months old.
