Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection in the United States and worldwide is a major cause of morbidity and mortality and of outpatient visits, hospitalizations, and increased healthcare costs. Effective diagnosis of viral respiratory infections, as well as recognition and understanding of the benefits and limitations of diagnostic laboratory testing, is essential. Serology is not useful for diagnosing acute respiratory illness. Antigen-based assays are widely available, easy to use… Expand
