Abstract

Influenza viruses have occasionally been associated with severe manifestations of croup, but no comparative studies of different viral etiologies are available. In a retrospective study we compared the clinical courses of croup caused by influenza and parainfluenza viruses in hospitalized children. By several indicators the clinical picture of croup caused by influenza viruses was significantly more severe than that caused by parainfluenza viruses.
