Tonsillitis

  • Seen also predominantly in children and causative agents similar to pharyngitis

  • The inflamed tonsils are usually covered by a yellow-white exudate

  • The adenoids may also be affected and associated hyperplasia of these organs may cause blockage of the eustachian tube and otitis media

  • Inadequately treated tonsillitis may result in tonsillar ulceration and peritonsillar abscess
