Meaning of Croup
Croup (or laryngotracheobronchitis) is a respiratory condition that is usually triggered by an acute viral infection of the upper airway. The infection leads to swelling inside the throat, which interferes with normal breathing and produces the classical symptoms of a "barking" cough, stridor, and hoarseness. It may produce mild, moderate, or severe symptoms, which often worsen at night. It is often treated with a single dose of oral steroids; occasionally inhaled epinephrine is used in more severe cases. Hospitalization is rarely required. - See link


Croup in Spanish is Laringotraqueobronquitis
El Crup (o laringotraqueobronquitis) es una enfermedad respiratoria que se desencadena usualmente por una infección viral aguda de las vías respiratorias superiores. La infección produce inflamación en la garganta, lo cual interfiere con la respiración normal y produce los clásicos síntomas de tos "perruna", estridor y disfonía. Puede producir síntomas leves, moderados o severos, los cuales empeoran frecuentemente durante la noche. Se trata usualmente con una dosis única de esteroides orales; en casos más severos se utiliza ocasionalmente epinefrina. Raramente requiere hospitalización. - See link
