Sažetak

Aim: To establish the epidemiological characteristics of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infections in children in the territory of Zagreb and Zagreb County during the 2009 and 2010 years. Methods: The research included 467 inpatients, aged 0-10 years, with acute respiratory infection. Study period was from 1st January 2009 to 31st December 2010. Clinical materials (nasopharyngeal excretions) were taken from each patient and the virus was detected using commercial monoclonal antibodies in direct immunofluorescence assay. Results: RSV infection was diagnosed in 238 (50.96 %) boys and 229 girls. RSV infections were the most frequent among the infants aged 0-6 months (202; 43.25 %). RSV proved to be the causative agent of bronchiolitis in 141 out of 467 patients (30.19 %) and pneumonia in 63/467 cases (13.49 %). Discussion and conclusions: In the first months of 2009 the RSV has been on a downward arm of the winter epidemics that continued from December 2008. During the 2010 there was a smaller RSV epidemic peak in the spring and the upward arm of a larger epidemic in late winter of that year. These results are consistent with our previous observations that RSV epidemics occur in two-year cycles in Croatia.
