[Comment] Determining the burden of respiratory syncytial virus disease: the known and the unknown

60 years ago, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) was identified in children admitted to hospital in Baltimore, MD, USA, with bronchiolitis or pneumonia.1 Since that time, RSV has been established as a leading cause of acute lower respiratory illness (ALRI) in infants and children living in all regions of the world.2–5 As the widespread use of Haemophilus influenzae type b and pneumococcal conjugate vaccines decreases the burden of bacterial pneumonia in children, the proportional contribution of RSV to childhood ALRI will continue to increase.
