The cough, in a child, that won’t go away!


The causes of chronic cough in children are extensive and the majority of respiratory conditions may present with cough. It is, however, important to establish the correct diagnosis and to manage the underlying cause. We outline a clinical approach to the management of a child presenting to primary care with a chronic cough. Highlighted are the specific diagnostic pointers, red flag features and when to refer for specialist investigations.
