Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The relationship between fever and the severity of acute infant bronchiolitis has been little studied, and the results of the few published studies are not concordant. AIM: To assess the significance of fever in children aged under 1 year with acute bronchiolitis. MATERIAL: 83 children aged between 0-1 year; hospitalized with the diagnosis of acute bronchiolitis during the winter of 2004-2005, assigned to two groups, with febrile bronchiolitis and afebrile bronchiolitis, respectively. METHOD: The evaluation of patients using a clinical score including respiratory effort, O2 saturation, respiratory rate, and the statistical processing of results comparatively in the two study groups. RESULTS: The mean duration of hospitalization was 5.8 days for febrile patients compared to 4.4 days for afebrile patients (p = 0.003). Infants with febrile bronchiolitis had a more severe clinical picture, evaluated by the clinical score, compared to afebrile patients (p = 0.03). CONCLUSION: Fever associated with acute bronchiolitis in children aged 0-1 year has the significance of a higher clinical severity and prolonged evolution of the disease.
