Table of Contents

Pharyngotonsillitis is a common illness in adults and children, often encountered by family and emergency medicine physicians. An infection in the pharynx, which is served by the lymphoid tissues of Waldeyer’s ring, can spread to other parts of the ring, such as the tonsils, nasopharynx, uvula, soft palate, adenoids, and cervical lymph glands, causing pharyngitis, tonsillitis, pharyngotonsillitis, and/or rhinosinusitis. These illnesses can be acute, subacute, chronic or recurrent. This book evaluates the efficiency of an oral ribosomal immunotherapy in the management of patients with recurrent pharyngotonsillitis.
