“Croup, also known as largnotracheobronchitis, is usually a self limiting upper airway viral infection. As the name suggest there is an inflammatory response occurring the larynx and trachea causing upper airway obstruction. This leads to the characteristic features of croup: a hoarse voice, barking cough, inspiratory stridor and increased work of breathing. Croup is the most common infectious cause of airway obstruction in children usually between 6months to 3 years, and is more common in boys than in girls”
