Abstract

Bronchiolitis is a common seasonal lung infection, almost always caused by a virus, mostly respiratory syncytial virus. Although some coronavirus species has been identified in children with bronchiolitis, the association with SARS-CoV-2 is questioned. Herein, we report 2 cases of 2 months infants presenting with classical covid-19 (fever, neurologic symptoms and positive RT-PCR test) who developed bronchiolitis within a short period after initial episode.
