Aim: This study aims to investigate the incidence and clinical particulars of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)
infection in infants hospitalized with bronchiolitis diagnoses between the years of 2006 and 2009.
Material and method: From October 2006 to October 2009, the registers of a total of 112 patients (< 2 years old)
who were diagnosed with bronchiolitis and for whom RSV antigen was scanned in the nasopharyngeal swab sample
were screened retrospectively and their clinical and laboratory particulars were evaluated. RSV antigen was sought
through the enzyme immunoassay method by using Respi-Strip RSV (Coris Bioconcept).
Results: RSV infection was detected in 31 (27.6%) cases. The families of the RSV-positive patients were larger
and their parents were older. The CRP positivity of RSV-positive cases was of a higher rate than that of RSV-negative
patients. RSV infection was most frequently detected in January. The rate of hospitalization and treatment of RSVinfected
infants in the intensive care unit was statistically and significantly higher than that of the RSV negative patient
Conclusion: We have detected a high rate of RSV infection in the cases hospitalized with bronchiolitis diagnosis,
which is in line with the literature. The detection of RSV infection in these patients will prevent unnecessary antibiotic.
In addition, virus-related hospital infections will be controlled more easily.
