Viruses and mycoplasma pneumoniae in child tracheo bronchitis data collected in parma italy from 1975 to 1982



Annali Sclavo 24(5): 466-481



From 1975-1982, children hospitalized for tracheobronchitis and other subjects hospitalized for non-respiratory diseases (controls) were studied virologically and serologically. From 245 cases, 90 viral agents were isolated from 84 children. These were: adenoviruses (14.3%), RSV [respiratory syncytial virus] (7.8%), enteroviruses (3.7%), rhinoviruses (3.3%) and influenza A viruses (2.4%). Serologic examination of 97 children with tracheobronchitis indicated a significant increase of complement-fixing antibodies for .gtoreq. 1 viral agents in 44 subjects (45.7%); 8 (8.2%) multiple infections were diagnosed by such methods. Antibodies against RSV (23.7%), influenza viruses (11.3%), and parainfluenza virus and adenoviruses (8.2%) were observed most frequently. Using virological and serological results, diagnosis was possible in 56 of 97 cases (57.7%). Thus, the prevalence of RSV (about half of the diagnosed cases) and the significant incidence of adenoviruses, influenza viruses and parainfluenza virus was confirmed. Of 414 children with non-respiratory diseases, viral agents were isolated in 9.4% of cases; no antibody increase was observed in 54 control cases examined serologically.
