Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the primary cause of pneumonia and bronchiolitis in young children and the leading cause of lower respiratory tract infections in infants in the United States (US). It is estimated that 2.1 million children under 5 years of age who are infected with RSV require medical attention each year in the US. Healthcare providers may be unaware of the extent to which RSV infection occurs and the burden of RSV infection among all children under 5 years of age. In addition, there is a decided lack of data regarding children over 24 months of age. In order to make effective clinical decisions, healthcare providers who are involved with the treatment of pediatric patients should be knowledgeable about recent advances in understanding RSV infection and current evidence-based recommendations for infants and children.
