Abstract

Background: Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a cause of acute chest syndrome (ACS) in sickle cell disease (SCD), but its clinical course and acute complications have not been well characterized. We compared RSV to seasonal influenza infections in children with SCD. Procedure: We defined cases as laboratory-confirmed RSV or seasonal influenza infection in inpatients and outpatients
