ABSTRACT
The article discusses the pediatric stridor, a high-pitched noise when breathing resulting from obstruction of the trachea or larynx. It is stated that the common medical cause of stridor is croup. Children with stridor must be investigated until a diagnosis is made to initiate a proper treatment to restore normal respiratory function. In cases of chronic stridor, airway endoscopy by a pediatric otolaryngologist is required to initiate treatment.
