In brief: Croup

Acute laryngotracheobronchitis, or croup, is an inflammatory condition of the upper airway, beginning just above the adam's apple and possibly extending down the trachea into the first set of bronchi.
It is mostly caused by viral infections such as rsv, in young babies and children, but can affect adults too.
