General Principles

Acute bronchitis involves inflammation of the bronchi, most often caused by viruses such as coronavirus, rhinovirus, influenza, or parainfluenza. Uncommon causes include M. pneumoniae, Chlamydophila pneumoniae, and Bordetella pertussis. Unfortunately, 60%–90% of patients with acute bronchitis are given antibiotics.1
