Infectious pneumonia is the most common cause of acute respiratory distress syndrome, with viruses frequently implicated as causative. However, the significance of viruses in pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome is unknown. We aimed to characterize the epidemiology of viral pneumonia in pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome and compare characteristics and outcomes between pneumonia subjects with and without viruses. Secondarily, we examined the association between specific viruses and outcomes.

Agents used in the prophylaxis or therapy of VIRUS DISEASES. Some of the ways they may act include preventing viral replication by inhibiting viral DNA polymerase; binding to specific cell-surface receptors and inhibiting viral penetration or uncoating; inhibiting viral protein synthesis; or blocking late stages of virus assembly.
An acute or subacute inflammatory process of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM characterized histologically by multiple foci of perivascular demyelination. Symptom onset usually occurs several days after an acute viral infection or immunization, but it may coincide with the onset of infection or rarely no antecedent event can be identified. Clinical manifestations include CONFUSION, somnolence, FEVER, nuchal rigidity, and involuntary movements. The illness may progress to COMA and eventually be fatal.
