  1. The epidemiology of acute epiglottitis in children in Western Australia.

    Article - En anglais

    A comprehensive case definition was used to study all cases of epiglottitis that occured in children under 15 years of age in Western Australia during a 5 year period.

    There was microbiological evidence of Haemophilus influenzae type b infection in 71% of 103 cases of epiglottitis.

    Seventy-five per cent of cases occurred in children under 5 years of age.

    In this age group, the estimated annual incidence (13.5 episodes per 100 000) was significantly lower than that reported in Victoria (22.7 per 100 000).
