There is ongoing debate on the contribution of RSVdisease to subsequent development of asthma in children. This study sought to determine the risk of subsequent asthma in different groups of high-risk children who developed severe RSV disease at a population level. The cohort comprised 847,516 children born between 2000-2011. Findings suggest that the hazard of first asthma hospitalisation in children who had a RSV hospitalisation was higher than children who did not persisted and this risk persisted beyond seven years of age.
