Abstract

Abstract The efficacy of dexamethasone therapy for primary respiratory syncytial virus bronchiolitis was studied in a double-blind placebo design in 29 previously healthy infants (median age, 194 days). No significant differences were found between the groups in evolution of respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, clinical score, or pulmonary function tests on day 3. (J Pediatr 1997;131:919-21)
