Croup; Pharynx Disorders 

 

Croup (also called laryngotracheobronchitis) is a disease which afflicts infants and young children, typically aged between 3 months and 5 years. It is characterized by a harsh 'barking' cough, inspiratory stridor and fever.

The group A streptococcus bacterium (Streptococcus pyogenes) is a form of Streptococcus bacteria responsible for most cases of streptococcal illness. Other types (B, C, D, and G) may also cause infection. Group B streptococci cause most streptococcal infections in newborns and maternal post-labor/delivery infections.
