This report presents management strategies after cardiopulmonary bypass surgery for an infant with community-acquired rhinovirus bronchiolitis. The case report emphasizes human rhinovirus as a lower respiratory pathogen, the difficulty treating the complications of human rhinovirus for an infant with cyanotic congenital heart disease after cardiac surgery, and the importance of preoperative evaluation for this respiratory infection in high-risk infants before cardiac surgery.
