Gender Ethnicracial And Life Span Considerations

Children susceptible to LTB are generally between the ages of 3 months and 4 years, with peak incidence between the ages of 1 and 2 years. The susceptibility decreases with age, although some children seem more prone to repeat episodes of LTB. Acute spasmodic laryngitis occurs in the same age group and peaks at age 18 months. As with many respiratory diseases, boys younger than 6 months are affected more often than girls, but in older children, the male-to-female ratio is equal. Croup is more common in white as contrasted with African American children.
