Abstract

Cough is a common symptom for children seeking medical attention. Although the cause of cough varies with age, its main cause in all childhood age groups is the Common cold. A complete history and physical examination will determine the cause in most cases; associated symptoms also are quite useful in segment of cough. Occasionally, additional laboratory evaluation is necessary to determine the cause of cough. When not self-limited, cough requires special attention, and certain kinds of cough require immediate medical attention. This review discusses clinical clues to the cause of cough and outlines its evaluation and treatment.
