  8. Chronic inflammation of the tonsils (chronic tonsillitis)
    In children this disease is common. The prerequisites for the development of chronic tonsillitis are anatomical-physiological and histological features, the presence of microflora in the lacunae, the violation of protective-adaptive mechanisms in the almond tissue. Most often, chronic tonsillitis begins after a sore throat. The inflammatory process in the tissues of the tonsils then becomes chronic
  9. Chronic inflammation of the tonsils - chronic tonsillitis
    Chronic tonsillitis (tonsillitis chronica) is a common infectious disease with the localization of a chronic foci of infection in the palatine tonsils with periodic exacerbations in the form of angina.

    In recent years, due to the deteriorating environmental situation, the prevalence of smoking, changes in the reactivity of the human body, there has been a significant increase in the incidence of chronic nonspecific lung diseases (CHDF).
