Pulmonary complications of influenza
Wojciech J. Piotrowski, Paweł Górski

Influenza viruses usually cause acute respiratory symptoms, and may affect up to 20% of population during epidemic. Although in the majority of cases the disease subside without treatment, severe complications and deaths may also occur. At higher risk are: infants, elderly persons, residents of nursing homes, patients suffering from chronic respiratory and circulatory disorders, and other diseases leading to impaired immune response. The present paper describes the most common respiratory complications of influenza, such as primary and secondary pneumonia, lung fibrosis, bronchiolitis obliterans, and also the impact of influenza on asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Special regard was paid to prophylactic anti-influenza vaccinations.
