PURPOSE: Bronchiolitis obliterans (BO) is a chronic obstructive lung disease secondary to severe injuries to respiratory tract. In children, BO occurs most often after lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) and common pathogens such as adenovirus, influenza virus, and mycoplasma pneumoniae, have been associated with the development of post-infectious BO (PIBO). The children with PIBO have frequent hospitalization due to exacerbations during the first years of the disease. Although they usually show clinical improvement as lung develops, the radiological findings and impaired lung function is persistent or sometimes progressive. In this study, we aim to investigate the clinical characteristics of PIBO in children.
