Respiratory Syncytial Virus

  • Patricia A. Cane

Abstract

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) was first isolated from a colony of chimpanzees and was designated chimpanzee coryza agent (Morris et al., 1956). Subsequently, the virus was recovered from infants with respiratory disease and renamed respiratory syncytial virus on account of its characteristic cytopathic effect in cell culture (Chanock et al., 1957). RSV is now known to be the main cause of hospitalisation of young children due to respiratory illness. is estimated that about 100,000 children are hospitalised annually in the USA due to RSV infection. Fortunately, RSV disease is seldom fatal in infants, but can be associated with severe illness in children with underlying problems such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia (MacDonald et al., 1982).
