Abstract

Twenty-seven infants with apparent life threatening events (ALTE) but without a history of upper respiratory infection, were tested for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Seven (25.6%) were positive. This suggests that RSV might be the etiology of ALTE for some infants without symptoms of upper respiratory infection.
