Potentially deadly sore throat

A rare condition that was nearly wiped out by a vaccine in the 80s is starting to reappear.

It's called acute epiglottitis and it may seem like a bad sore throat but can lead to more serious problems.

It starts as a viral infection then becomes bacterial and eventually the lower throat becomes so swollen it can cut off breathing.

Doctors say it is primarily found in men in their forties but can also be found in young women and children.

Some warning signs include trouble breathing and speaking, drooling and a high pitched sound when breathing.

The good news, if caught early, it i completely treatable.
