Angina Trachealis (Croup) Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy Angina trachealis is more commonly known as croup, this is an infection of the larynx, trachea, and the bronchial tubes that occurs mainly in children. It is usually caused by viruses, less often by bacteria. Symptoms include a cough that sounds like a barking seal and a harsh crowing sound during inhaling. As most parents are aware, the treatment is to expose the child to steam, commonly by turning on the hot water spigot of the bathroom shower and staying in the room with this child until relief occurs.
