Risk factors of complicated H1N1 influenza in hospitalized Italian children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We explored complications and risk factors for severe disease in 78 children with swine influenza admitted to Bambino Gesù Children Hospital. The majority of our children experienced respiratory complications (55%). Previously healthy children developed a chest consolidation more frequently than chronic diseases affected patients (p=0.04). Apparently, the incidence of respiratory complications was slightly higher in the neutropenic group than in those with a normal value of neutrophilis (respectively 94.1% and 80%).
