Abstract

Croup in a young child may lead to severe airway narrowing, and would present a severe risk for administration of anesthesia. To the best of our knowledge, there have been no previous case reports of patients undergoing general anesthesia with croup. In our report, we describe a case of a 31 month old child with croup who required anesthesia.
