Bordetella pertussis was uncommon among infants hospitalized with bronchiolitis during the winter season, as well as during interepidemic periods of pertussis, according to recent study results.

Pedro A. Piedra, MD, of the department of molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, and colleagues set out to determine the prevalence for B. pertussis infection and to describe its clinical course among a cohort of U.S. children aged younger than 2 years hospitalized with bronchiolitis during three consecutive winter seasons between 2007 and 2010.
