Three case histories of young infants with supraglottitis are presented. At this age, supraglottitis rarely occurs. Atypical features, as compared to older children, include a viral prodrome, lack of fever, stomatitis, and negative blood cultures. Although viral supraglottitis has been previously reported, this is the first report of epiglottitis associated with parainfluenza virus.
