ACUTE STREPTOCOCCIC EDEMA OF THE LARYNX WITH SECONDARY ATELECTATIC PNEUMONITIS

ACUTE STREPTOCOCCIC EDEMA OF THE LARYNX WITH SECONDARY ATELECTATIC PNEUMONITIS Abstract The purpose of this paper is to emphasize the seriousness of streptococcic edema of the larynx and the necessity for early recognition and treatment. The condition has been known under various names, such as spasmodic croup, black croup, strangulation croup and laryngeal stridor, and in later days as acute bronchial stenosis, acute bronchitis and laryngitis, laryngotracheitis, nondiphtheritic croup and many other synonyms. Seven years ago a member of the staff of the Montgomery Hospital asked me to visit a patient with him. The boy, 8 years old, was unable to breathe properly, and while he was apparently not very ill, he had a shocked and worried appearance.

Abstract

Abstract The purpose of this paper is to emphasize the seriousness of streptococcic edema of the larynx and the necessity for early recognition and treatment. The condition has been known under various names, such as spasmodic croup, black croup, strangulation croup and laryngeal stridor, and in later days as acute bronchial stenosis, acute bronchitis and laryngitis, laryngotracheitis, nondiphtheritic croup and many other synonyms. Seven years ago a member of the staff of the Montgomery Hospital asked me to visit a patient with him. The boy, 8 years old, was unable to breathe properly, and while he was apparently not very ill, he had a shocked and worried appearance. Owing to his difficulty in respiration I suggested that he be removed to the hospital for care and for immediate surgical intervention if necessary. I accordingly took him to the hospital and placed him in a tent for steam inhalation. Early the following
