Serious respiratory illness associated with rhinovirus infection in a pediatric population

Clinical and Diagnostic Virology
J O Kim, R L Hodinka


Rhinoviruses have long been associated with mild upper respiratory illness in both adults and children. However, the role of rhinoviruses as lower respiratory tract pathogens has not been fully characterized. Previous data suggests that rhinoviruses may cause severe lower respiratory illness in young children or infants. The present study describes the clinical presentations, severity of illness and outcomes for a large cohort of pediatric patients with documented rhinovirus infections. A retrospective chart review was done on 93 pediatric patients from whom 101 nasopharyngeal or endotracheal specimens were positive by viral culture for a rhinovirus. All patients were hospitalized or seen in the pediatric emergency department at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia between 1 January, 1990 and 31 May, 1996. Of the 93 patients, 52 were male and 41 female. The age range was 0 days to 18 years with 25 (27%) less than 3 months, 42 (45%) between 3 and 12 months and 26 (28%) over the age of 12 months. Clinical presentations on evaluation in the emergency department or admission included 78 (84%) patients with acute respiratory illness, 13 (17%) with fever and suspected sepsis and 11 (12%) with other complaints. Reported physical fi...Continue Reading
