Recurrent wheezing in children with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis in Qatar.

Author information

Department of Paediatrics, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar, Arabian Gulf.


Records of 70 infants admitted to Hamad General Hospital with RSV bronchiolitis and a similar number of controls were retrospectively reviewed. Two years after admission, 44% of the infants with RSV bronchiolitis developed recurrent wheezing compared with only 12.9% of controls (P = 0.001). A family history of atopy appeared not to be a significant predisposing factor for the occurrence of recurrent wheezing in post RSV bronchiolitis patients. These results are similar to those from similar studies in industrialized countries.
