Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) – a risk for all children under two years of age

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a virus that may cause a wide range of diseases ranging from mild upper respiratory illness to life threatening lower respiratory tract infections. Usually, an RSV infection results in mild, cold-like symptoms. However, it is also a main cause of hospital admission in infants and children. Generally, it is not possible to predict which infants get seriously ill from RSV.
