Bronchiolitis obliterans is a rare chronic obstructive respiratory disease secondary to damage of the lower respiratory tract causing inflammation and partial or total obliteration of it. There are different causes, being infectious the most frequent in pediatrics, mainly due to adenovirus.

We present the case of an 18-month-old male infant with a history of admission to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at 8 months of age due to bronchitis secondary to respiratory syncytial virus and adenovirus. After this episode, he presented persistent respiratory distress and pathological pulmonary auscultation. High resolution pulmonary computed tomography showed a mosaic pattern with areas of air trapping and decreased vascular caliber in the affected areas, findings suggestive of bronchiolitis obliterans.
