Abstract

The presence of a foreign body must always be considered in young children with airway obstruction. Once this has been ruled out, then inflammatory disease of the major airway assumes prime importance. Supraglottitis may often be suspected after simple history and examination. 'Croup' describes various disorders that have the common denominator of inflammatory subglottic swelling. Appropriate therapy remains controversial.
