Question:

What is an infection that causes the mucous membranes lining the bronchi to become inflamed?

Answer:

Not to be confused with bronchitis, bronchiolitis is an inflammation of the bronchioles, the smallest branches of the bronchial tree. Bronchiolitis affects mostly infants and young children, and can cause wheezing and serious difficulty breathing.
