through the nose or mouth, it travels through the larynx (an organ that aids in breathing and sound production, also called the voice box), and down the windpipe. The trachea then branches into two tubes, called bronchi, which deliver air directly to the lungs. In addition to delivering oxygen to the lungs, the trachea also carries carbon dioxide out of the body through exhalation.
Tracheitis is a bacterial infection of the trachea. This type of infection typically affects younger children, but children up to the age of 16 may also be at risk. Bacterial tracheitis is more common in boys; however, it is a rare disease, affecting 0.1 per 100,000 children per year. (MR, 2010)
Although bacterial tracheitis is rare, if not treated promptly it can lead to life-threatening complications.

What Causes Bacterial Tracheitis?
Bacterial tracheitis is typically caused by Staphylococcus aureus. However, there are other bacteria that can cause these infections. These include:
Streptococcus pneumonia
Haemophilus influenza
Moraxella catarrhalis
Although cases of the disorder have been reported in adults, bacterial tracheitis is most commonly seen in young children. Bacterial tracheitis often develops following an upper respiratory infection (URI), such as the common cold. Following a URI, bacteria are able to more easily invade the trachea, causing infection, inflammation, and rapid swelling.
Because the trachea of children is small and because of the position of the trachea in children, even mild swelling may quickly block the airway. This condition may not occur as rapidly in adults, and the infection may heal before the airway becomes obstructed. This may explain why bacterial tracheitis is seen more commonly in children than in adults.
