Few studies have addressed respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection during pregnancy. Among 846 pregnant women hospitalized with respiratory illness and tested for RSV, 21 (2%) were RSV positive, of whom 8 (38%) were diagnosed with pneumonia. Despite study limitations, these data can help inform decisions about RSV prevention strategies.
