Lung ultrasound is rapidly being employed in both adult and paediatric populations, allowing for the quick assessment of a wide range of lung and pleura illnesses. The method's popularity stems from various factors, including its low cost, speed, lack of ionising radiation, accessibility at the bedside, and reproducibility. These characteristics are even more significant now that the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has broken out, because ultrasound can detect the indications of interstitial lung syndrome, which is a type of pneumonia caused by the virus. The goal of this study is to go over the available data for lung ultrasonography (LUS) in children, as well as the main applications of LUS in paediatric disorders.
