Bronchiectasis and bronchiolitis obliterans post respiratory syncytial virus infection: think again.

Author information

Department of Rspiratory Medicine, Royal Children's Hospital, Parkville, Victoria, Australia.


Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) lower respiratory tract infections are common, yet long-term sequelae in previously healthy infants and children are rarely reported. We report a child who developed bronchiectasis and bronchiolitis obliterans following an RSV lower respiratory tract infection but in whom adenovirus was detected on stored serum. Co-infection with adenovirus is the likely cause for the bronchiectasis and bronchiolitis obliterans.
