Background: Hyponatraemia occurs during bronchiolitis, sometimes with neurological manifestations. The prevalence of the latter differs widely and little is known about the time of occurrence and associated factors. This study was undertaken to investigate these complications. Methods: This was a retrospective observational chart review of a cohort of 233 infants under 2 years of age admitted with bronchiolitis to a teaching hospital in the United Arab Emirates. Results: Hyponatraemia (serum sodium 38°C) on admission and the duration of hospitalisation.
