Radiography in predicting clinical outcomes in croup

Croup is a common respiratory disease common in children between 6 months and 6 years usually caused by a human parainfluenza virus incriminated in up to 75% of all cases. In croup patients, anteroposterior of the soft tissue on neck radiograph may reveal a steeple sign while the lateral view of the soft tissue on neck radiograph may demonstrate over distention of the hypopharynx during inspiration and blurring of tracheal air shadow by subglottic edema.
