. Apnoea may occur (particularly in premature infants or in those <3 months of age) and may precede the development of bronchiolitis. Interstitial pneumonitis is uncommon but carries a bad prognosis. Otitis media is a common complication of RSV infection in children. Infants at highest risk from severe RSV disease are those under 6 months, those with pre-existing congenital heart disease, chronic lung diseases (e.g. bronchopulmonary dysplasia), and those born premature.
Infection in adults is often asymptomatic or leads to upper respiratory tract infection. During the RSV season, it is an important cause of lower respiratory tract infection in adults and the elderly—estimated to cause 2 to 9 per cent of the hospitalizations and deaths associated with pneumonia in the elderly. Much of this morbidity is clinically indistinguishable from influenza.
