Abstract:
In Germany, epidemiological data on morbiditiy and mortality of severe influenza in children is limited. The surveillance project aims at determining the frequency of laboratory-confirmed influenza-associated disease and fatalities in paediatric intensive care units in Bavaria, Germany. Risk factors pre-disposing for severe influenza disease, complications and vaccination status are analysed and the incidence of severe seasonal and pandemic influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 is estimated.
