Causes of unilateral tonsillar enlargement ppt

Introduction: Unilateral tonsillar enlargement is often seen in the out-patient setting. Frequently, these patients are listed for tonsillectomy for the purpose of ruling out malignant histology. This study aims to determine the necessity for tonsillectomy Bacteria cause 15-30% of cases of pharyngotonsillitis. Anaerobic bacteria play an important role in tonsillar disease. Most cases of bacterial tonsillitis are caused by group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus pyogenes (GABHS). S pyogenes adheres to adhesin receptors that are located on the tonsillar epithelium. Immunoglobulin coating of pathogens.

Unilateral tonsillar swelling is a fairly common presenting complaint in an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) department. It may or may not be associated with any other symptoms. Most of the time, the tonsil asymmetry is secondary to previous history of tonsillitis, quinsy, and tonsil stones. Other benign lesions to cause tonsil swelling may include a mucus retention cyst, lipoma, polyp or papilloma Tonsillar enlargement may be surprisingly asymptomatic and one often sees children with very large tonsils who don't snore or have very few others symptoms however some children with smaller tonsils but with lax and floppy tissues of the lining of the throat or pharynx can have significant symptoms with snoring, struggling to breathe and even. Tonsillar hypertrophy is another term for enlarged tonsils. While they're sometimes a sign of an infection, they don't always have a clear cause, especially in children. We'll go over why. Cold drinks to numb a sore throat. 3. Peritonsillar Abscess. Peritonsillar abscess, commonly known as quinsy, is an uncommon, but possibly serious consequence of tonsillitis, which could be the cause for swollen tonsil on one side. This is where pus collects between the throat wall and tonsil, forming an abscess

Kimura's disease of the tonsil is a very rare condition. We report a rare case of Kimura's disease presenting as a unilateral tonsillar enlargement in an elderly man in Nepal. The clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment options for this rare disease are discussed in this article. 2. Case Report tonsil for histopathological purposes to rule out malignant tumour in asymmetric tonsil is one of the definite indication for surgery. 5,6. It has been standard practice to perform diagnostic tonsillectomy to exclude malignancy when tonsillar asymmetry is encountered. 7. Apparent unilateral tonsillar enlargement is often spurious and many. Discussion. Unilateral tonsillar enlargement is considered to be a sign of a potential tonsillar malignancy. In a series from the University of Iowa, Beaty et al. reported that the strongest risk factor for predicting tonsillar malignancy was tonsillar asymmetry, which occurred in 21(84%) of 25 patients with a tonsillar neoplasm. 2 The experience of the House Ear Institute is that the.

1 Introduction. Tonsillar tumors are relatively common primary carcinomas in head and neck, and unilateral tonsillar obvious enlargement with regional lymph node swollen often raises the suspicion of malignancy in tonsil, when infection have been excluded. Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common pathologic type of tonsil tumors followed by non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) A young man in his late teens presented to a pediatric otolaryngologist for evaluation of enlarged tonsils and recurrent tonsillitis. The patient reported 2 episodes of streptococcal tonsillitis and infectious mononucleosis over the past 8 months, as well as frequent throat soreness and associated difficulty swallowing throughout the past year Unilateral swelling of the tonsils without fever is a typical manifestation of enlarged tonsils. Tonsil enlargement can affect 1 or all of the tonsils and are not always associated with fever. The disease causes typical symptoms such as difficulty swallowing, fatigue, bad breath, snoring while sleeping, breathing through the mouth, hearing loss. 2. Strep Throat. Streptococcus is another cause of having only one tonsil swollen. This condition can be seen mostly in those ages five to 15 but can affect anyone at any age. Strep throat can cause inflammation and swelling. It is highly contagious, as it can spread by coughing and sneezing Tonsil swelling: Generally not unilateral 2+ size.

Unilateral tonsillar enlargement is considered to be a sign of a potential tonsillar malignancy. In a series from University of Lowa, Beaty et al . reported that the strongest risk factor for predicting tonsillar malignancy was tonsillar asymmetry, which occurred in 21 of 25 patients with a tonsillar neoplasm. [11 The enlarged tonsil on one side may be an indication of bacterial or viral infections. Swollen and inflamed tonsil is common in children aged two to fifteen, but it can affect adults too.

Although unilateral parotid swelling is more frequently seen, bilateral parotid swelling is not uncommon. 1 Bilateral parotid swelling can result from a diverse spectrum of pathologies (Table 1), several of which do not require imaging of any kind and can be easily diagnosed clinically, whereas others can. The most common cause of unilateral tonsillar hypertrophy is tonsillar squamous cell carcinoma and lymphomas. Tonsillar actinomycosis is a rare entity that mimic tonsillar neoplasia.

PTA is considered a purulent complication of tonsillitis (1) and is classed as a deep neck space abscess. Although it is the most common and least life-threatening deep abscess, PTA requires urgent management to avoid progression to far more.

All the risk factors for malignancy like Cervical lymph node enlargement, Sex, Age, Tonsillar size were evaluated and out of 11(eleven) cases of Unilateral Tonsillar Enlargement during the study period 2011 - 2012, 7 ( seven) were taken up for surgery. Results Histo pathological evaluation showed 85.7 % to be benign and 14.3 % to be malignant macroglossia and adenoid tonsillar hypertrophy. Tonsillar hypertrophy is a common remedial risk factor for OSA in the pediatric population, but may also play a role in the pathophysiology of sleep-related upper airway obstruction in adults1. The most common causes of asymmetric tonsils are unequal scarring from prior infection and benign lymphoi Causes more severe symptoms, including trismus, a muffled voice, a displaced uvula, and an enlarged, displaced tonsil, with swelling of the peri-tonsillar region.

Cervical lymphadenopathy is abnormal enlargement of lymph nodes (LNs) in the head and neck usually >1 cm. Most cases are benign and self-limited, however, the differential diagnosis is broad. Viral upper respiratory tract infection is the most common cause of cervical lymphadenopathy in children Adenoid hypertrophy is an obstructive condition related to an increased size of the adenoids. The condition can occur with or without an acute or chronic infection of the adenoids. The adenoids are a collection of lymphoepithelial tissue in the superior aspect of the nasopharynx medial to the Eustachian tube orifices. In conjunction with the faucial and lingual tonsils, the adenoids make up. Lymphadenitis is an infection in one or more lymph nodes. When lymph nodes become infected, it's usually because an infection started somewhere else in your body. Lymphadenitis can cause lymph nodes to become enlarged, red, or tender.
