Influenza is an important cause of respiratory illness in children, but data are limited on hospitalized children with laboratory-confirmed influenza in China.
We conducted active surveillance for severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) (fever and at least one sign or symptom of acute respiratory illness) among hospitalized pediatric patients in Jingzhou, Hubei province from April 2010 to April 2012. Data were collected from enrolled SARI patients on demographics, underlying health conditions, clinical course of illness, and outcomes. Nasal swabs were collected and tested for influenza viruses by RT-PCR. We described the clinical and epidemiological characteristics of children with influenza, and analyzed the association between potential risk factors and SARI patients with influenza.
