    Article - En anglais

    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.
