    Tonsillitis Tonsillitis Presentation Transcript

    • TONSILLITISDEPT OF OTORHINOLARYNGOLOGY JJM M C DAVANAGERE
    • ANATOMY OF PALATINE TONSIL Paired structures situated in lateral wall of oropharynx between anterior and posterior pillars Consists of two surfaces (medial and lateral) and two poles (upper and lower) Medial surface is covered by non keratinizing stratified squamous epithelium There are 12-15 crypts on the medial surface Largest crypt is called crypta magna or intratonsillar cleft
    • ANATOMY OF PALATINE TONSIL Lateral surface of tonsil presents a well defined fibrous capsule Loose areolar tissue lies between the tonsillar bed and the capsule, it is the site for collection of pus in peritonsillar abscess (Quinsy) Upper pole of tonsil extends into soft palate, its medial surface is covered by semilunar fold plica semilunaris Lower pole of tonsil is attached to the tongue, triangular fold of mucous membrane extends from anterior pillar to antero-inferior part of tonsil enclosing plica triangularis Tonsil is seperated from the tongue by tonsilo- lingual sulcus
    • ANATOMY OF PALATINE TONSIL
    • TONSILLAR BED Formed by Loose areolar tissue containing paratonsillar vein Pharyngo-basilar fascia Superior constrictor muscle Bucco-pharyngeal fascia Styloglossus Medial pterygoid muscle Glossopharyngeal nerve Facial artery
    • BLOOD SUPPLY OF TONSIL
    • LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE Lymphatics pierce the superior constrictor and drain into upper deep cervical (jugulo- digastric) node
    • FUNCTIONS OF TONSIL It is the component of inner waldeyer’s ring It has a protective role and acts as a sentinal at portal of air and food passage Crypts increase the surface area for contact with foreign substances
    • ACUTE TONSILLITIS Mostly affects children in the age group of 5-15 years, may also affect adults Organisms  beta-hemolytic streptococci (most common), staphylococci, pneumococci, H.influenzae Symptoms: sore throat, difficulty in swallowing, fever, ear ache, constitutional symptoms
    • ACUTE TONSILLITIS-TYPES Acute catarrhal/superficial  here tonsillitis is a part of generalized pharyngitis, mostly seen in viral infections Acute follicular  infection spread into the crypts with purulent material, presenting at the opening of crypts as yellow spots Acute parenchymatous  tonsil in uniformly enlarged and congested Acute membranous  follows stage of acute follicular tonsillitis where exudates coalesce to form membrane on the surface
    • Acute catarrhal/superficial
    • Acute follicular
    • Acute membranous
    • SIGNS Halitosis Coated tongue Congestion of pillars, soft palate and uvula Jugulo-digastric nodes enlarged and tender Tonsils are congested and enlarged depending on type of acute tonsillitis
    • TREATMENT Bed rest Plenty of oral fluids Analgesics Antimicrobial therapy penicillin In case of penicillin sensitivity macrolides are given
    • COMPLICATIONS chronic tonsillitis peritonsillar abscess parapharyngeal abscess cervical abscess acute otitis media rheumatic fever acute glomerulo nephritis sub acute bacterial endocarditis
    • DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS OF MEMBRANE OVER THE TONSIL Membranous tonsillitis Diphtheria Vincents angina Infectious mononucleosis Agranulocytosis Leukaemia Traumatic ulcer Aphthous ulcer malignancy
    • CHRONIC TONSILLITIS Aetiology: Complication of acute tonsillitis Sub clinical infection of tonsil Chronic sinusitis or dental sepsis Mostly affects children and young adults
    • TYPES OF CHRONIC TONSILLITIS Chronic follicular tonsillitis Chronic parenchymatous tonsillitis : tonsils are very much enlarged uniformly and may interfere with speech, deglutition and respiration, long standing cases may develop pulmonary hypertension Chronic fibroid tonsillitis
    • CLINICAL FEATURES recurrent attacks of sore throat chronic irritation in throat with cough halitosis dysphagia odynophagia thick speech
    • SIGNS Tonsil may show varying degree of enlargement depending on the type Irwin-moore sign pressure on the anterior pillar expresses frank pus or cheesy material  mainly seen in fibroid type Flushing of the anterior pillar compared to rest of the pharyngeal mucosa Enlargement of the jugulo-digastric node  soft non tender
    • TREATMENT conservative management tonsillectomy
    • COMPLICATIONS Peritonsillar abscess Parapharyngeal abscess Retro pharyngeal abscess Intra tonsillar abscess Tonsillar cyst Tonsillolith Focus of infection for RF, AGN
    • Peritonsillar abscess
    • STYALGIA (EAGLE’S SYNDROME) Due to elongated styloid process or calcification of stylohyoid ligament Patient complains of pain in tonsillar fossa and upper neck which radiates to ipsilateral ear It gets aggravated on swallowing Diagnosis is by transoral palpation in tonsillar fossa X-ray Townes view is helpful in diagnosis Treatment is by excision of styloid process by transoral or cervical approach
