Cough in children, even in infants under 1 year of age, is a frequent problem in clinical practice. Many causes are possible and should be considered, but only a few are likely. In primary care, appropriate evaluation is based on skillful history taking. In an ostensibly healthy child or infant with recurrent episodes of nighttime cough preceded by an upper respiratory infection, asthma should be strongly considered. This is especially important when there is a positive family history of asthma.
