This on-demand video examines the many and varied types and causes of both acute and chronic cough in pre-school aged children. A framework for synthesising history and examination findings into a rational diagnosis, at the exclusion of recognised differential diagnoses will be discussed. The importance of RSV-associated illnesses bronchiolitis and croup will be explored as common causes of acute cough in children under 5 years of age, while viral associated wheeze, multiple-trigger wheeze and asthma will be explored as common causes of chronic daily cough in young children.
Describe the salient features on history and examination of a preschool-aged child presenting with acute cough that facilitates a rational diagnosis and exclusion of common differential diagnoses.
