Aerosol therapy in children has increased considerably in both sophistication and scope, and the advantages of this route for the delivery of a variety of drugs have become well recognized. This review describes the physical properties of aerosols that influence lung deposition, followed by a review of the most common methods of aerosol generation. The last part of the paper is devoted to recent developments in our understanding of aerosol delivery to infants and young children, a relatively neglected and under appreciated area in aerosol therapy.
