Information About the Disease
Respiratory Synctial Virus (RSV) is a very contagious virus and the most common cause of bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small airways in the lung) and pneumonia in children younger than age 1 in the U.S. Almost all children are infected with the virus by their second birthday, but only a small percentage of children develop severe illness. RSV can infect a person several times during their lifetime. After each RSV infection, the body becomes more immune to the virus, but the person is never completely immune.
