    Article - En anglais

    The occurrence of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection among young children hospitalized with lower respiratory tract illness, at King Khalid University Hospital in Riyadh, was examined during the autumn-winter season between September 1991 and February 1992.

    Sixty-nine cases were diagnosed by immunofluorescent antibody staining of viral antigen in nasopharyngeal aspirates from 127 children, constituting 54 per cent of these patients.

    Virus culture was attempted only in a few cases, yielding two isolates.

    Most children were < 1 year of age (median 2 months).

    Bronchiolitis and bronchopneumonia were the major diagnoses on admission.

    Hospitalization was for an average of 5 days.

    (range 1-36 days).
