Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Impact of the Administration of Systemic Glucocorticoids on Inflammatory Response and Clinical Evolution of Patients Diagnosed With Moderate- Severe Bronchiolitis|
- Change from Baseline in inflammatory response [ Time Frame: enrollment to one week treatment ]inflammatory response evaluation of the first week of glucocorticoids treatment as assessed by multiple measurements aggregated to arrive at one reported value, which are: the bronchiolitis clinical severity Scale, pediatric mortality Risk scale (PRISM III), the Chest x-ray test, the nasopharyngeal aspiration and analytical exploration (at day 5-7)
- Morbidity episodes [ Time Frame: 14 months ]Morbidity assessment by multiple measurements aggregated to arrive at one reported value which are as follow: necessity of mechanical ventilation, inotropic, presence of nosocomial infection, rescue therapies if respiratory failure occur; days of admission to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and hospitalization, in both treatment and control groups
- Number of Side effects estimate [ Time Frame: 14 months ]Number of Side effects estimate by comparing the experimental group to the control group

methylprednisolone intravenous administration of 2mg/kg/day (divided in two doses) and/or oral prednisolone 2,5 mg/kg/day (in two divided doses) during 7 days.
Patients younger than 2 year, who required hospitalization, affected by moderate or severe bronchiolitis
Patients assigned to experimental group (group 1) will receive iv methylprednisolone 2 mg/kg/day (divided in two doses) doses and/or oral prednisolone 2,5 mg/kg/day (divided in two doses) during 7 days.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
will receive iv/oral glucose 5% solution as placebo of 2mg/kg/day and/or 2,5 mg/kg/day (divided in two doses) during 7 days.
Patients younger than 2 year, who required hospitalization, affected by moderate or severe bronchiolitis.
Patients assigned to control group (group 2) will receive iv/oral glucose 5% solution as placebo, 2 mg/kg/day (divided in two doses) during 7 days.
