Like Doctor Coffin, whose letter you printed in the September issue, we have practiced for 10 plus years in a three-man group which has together treated all of the croup cases in a very busy practice. The difference is we do not use corticosteroids in croup. There have been no fatalities and the only tracheostomies have been in cases of epiglottitis (possibly three).
