Abstract

Bacterial tracheitis is an extremely rare entity, long considered to be a disease of pediatrics. However, cases continue to be reported among adult patients. We present the case of a 19-year-old female patient who presented to our Emergency Department (ED) with bacterial tracheitis. Other adult cases of bacterial tracheitis as reported in the literature from 1981 to the present are discussed.
