Tonsillopharyngitis

In a tonsillopharyngitis is an acute pharyngitis and / or tonsillitis infection. Symptoms sore throat, dysphagia, cervical lymphadenopathy and fever may occur. The diagnosis is clinical and can be secured by culture or antigen rapid test. The treatment is based on the symptoms and takes place in the case of ?-hemolytic group A streptococci with antibiotics.

(Streptococcal infections.) In a tonsillopharyngitis is an acute pharyngitis and / or tonsillitis infection. Symptoms sore throat, dysphagia, cervical lymphadenopathy and fever may occur. The diagnosis is clinical and can be secured by culture or antigen rapid test. The treatment is based on the symptoms and takes place in the case of ?-hemolytic group A streptococci with antibiotics. The tonsils are involved in the body’s immune system (immunosurveillance). In addition, play antigen-antibody reactions which occur with the participation of B- and T-cells in their Plattenepithelschicht, a role in the local defense.

Etiology A tonsillopharyngitis is often viral conditions, mostly due to a virus infection (adeno, rhino, influenza, corona and respiratory syncytial virus), but sometimes also by Epstein-Barr, herpes simplex, cytomegalovirus or HIV infection. Approximately 30% of patients there is a bacterial cause. Most common are ?-hemolytic group A streptococci (BHSGA) (streptococcal infection), but from time to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, and Chlamydia pneumoniae are involved. Rare infection by Fusobacterium, or the causative agent of whooping cough, diphtheria, syphilis and gonorrhea is triggered. BHSGA infections occur mainly between the ages of 5 to 15 years and rarely in children under 3 years. Symptoms and complaints symptom is pain on swallowing, which are often projected in the ears. Since small children usually do not speak or may complain of a sore throat, they simply refuse to eat. High fever, malaise, headache and gastrointestinal complaints are common symptoms, like bad breath breath (halitosis) and husky voice. A scarlet-like or non-specific volatile rash may occur. The swollen and reddened tonsils often have purulent coverings. A pressure-sensitive enlargement of cervical lymph nodes is also possible. Although fever, lymphadenopathy, petechiae slightly more likely occur at a BHSGA- than viral Tonsillopharyngitiden on the palate and Eiterstippchen, there are many overlaps. A BHSGA infection usually degrades within a week. Left untreated, they can lead local complications (eg. As peritonsillar or purulent peritonsillitis) and sometimes rheumatic fever or glomerulonephritis by itself. Acute tonsillitis figure provided by Clarence T.
