In brief: Cough and wheeze

Yes, bronchiolitis is typically an inflammation of the very small airways or bronchiole tubes in infants and is typically caused by a virus, often times the RSV virus.
Symtoms include cough, wheezing, congestion, runny nose, fever, and other symptoms seen with viral illnesses. Very young, premature babies can be particularly affected by bronchiolitis.
