Bronchiolitis is a common viral respiratory illness that affects infants. Any number of different viruses can cause bronchiolitis, but the end result is the same: inflammation, swelling and mucus production in the small airways of the lungs called the bronchioles. Bronchiolitis typically occurs during the first two years of life, most commonly in infants from 3-6 months old, and mostly occurs during the winter months. The virus most commonly associated with bronchiolitis is Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), which accounts for approximately half of all cases.
