Bronchiolitis due to human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV)

Bronchiolitis is an infection that causes the small respiratory passages in the lungs (bronchioles) to become inflamed and mucus to build up in them. This blocks the flow of air, making it difficult to breathe.

It happens more often in babies because their airways are smaller and more easily blocked than in older children.

Bronchiolitis is not the same as bronchitis, which is an infection in the larger and more central airways that typically causes problems in adults.
