The present thesis describes studies on different aspects of acute respiratory tract infections (ARTIs) caused by viruses in paediatric patients admitted to intensive care.

Special attention is given to disease symptoms and signs, impact of underlying disease, and options for diagnosis and prevention of recently discovered respiratory virus infections, re-emerging dengue, and emerging avian influenza virus (H5N1).
