Paratonsillar abscess


Clinical picture
Occurs as a further development of paratonzillite due to purulent melting of the paratonsillar infiltrate. May be complicated by bleeding, the development of mediasthenitis and tonsillogenic sepsis.
Sore throat worse when swallowing and opening the mouth. Eating is difficult. Body temperature rises sharply. The maxillary lymph nodes are enlarged, become painful on palpation. The palatine arches and the adjacent part of the soft palate on the affected side swell, narrowing the lumen of the pharynx and shifting the tongue to a healthy side (the disease is often one-sided).
Urgent Care
Along with topical application of heat, intramuscular injections of penicillin, or the prescription of antibiotics, surgical intervention is necessary - opening a ripened abscess.
After opening the abscess, disinfecting oropharyngeal rinsing is performed with 0.02% furatsilin solution.

Paratonsillar abscess

  1. Paratonsillary abscess (paratonsillitis)
    This disease is also called phlegmonous sore throat. Paratonsillar fiber is located between the tonsil capsule and pharyngeal fascia, the distance between which is normally 0.5–1 cm, and parapharyngeal cellulose behind the pharyngeal fascia, lateral. These spaces are made of fiber, the inflammation of which, and in the final stage, and abscess formation determines the clinic.
  2. Zakoplotny and paratonzillary abscesses
    The zakletochny abscess develops as a result of purulent lesions of the deep pharyngeal lymph nodes and loose tissue located in the zaklonia gullet. These lymph nodes are regional for the posterior nasal cavity, the paranasal sinuses, the auditory tube, the middle ear, the nasal pharynx, and the tonsils. A zaplottic abscess may be observed in newborns, but
  3. Paratonzillary abscesses. Types, Technique and features of surgical treatment
    Paratyoillary abscess is an acute inflammation of para-tonsillar tissue and surrounding tissues as a result of the penetration of an infection here from lacunae or suppurative follicles of the tonsils. It is usually a complication of angina. Types of paratonzillary abscesses 1. Upper (anterior-upper) paratonsillar abscess. It is observed most often. It forms between the front top
  4. Paratonsillar abscess. U-36
    {foto33} Outcome of treatment: Clinical criteria for improving the patient's condition: 1. Normalization of temperature. 2. Normalization of laboratory parameters. 3. Improvement of the clinical symptoms of the disease (pain, difficulty swallowing, purulent discharge from
  5. EPIDURAL ABSCESS
    Epidural abscess - an infectious process that develops between the bones of the skull and the outer sheet of the dura mater, may be accompanied by osteomyelitis. Due to the fact that the pathogen easily penetrates through the dura mater along the emissary veins, the epidural abscess is often accompanied by a subdural empyema. The main pathogens most common cause of
  6. Abscess
    Abscess (abscessus), abscess, abscess - a limited cavity filled with pus, formed as a result of focal purulent fusion of tissues. Etiology. The cause of abscesses is the penetration of microorganisms into the tissue when the skin and mucous membrane is damaged and when foreign bodies get into the tissues. They can also be made with therapeutic manipulations (injections, subcutaneous infusions) produced
  7. Abscess
    Physical blockage An abscess is a collection of pus in one place. There are hot and cold abscesses. With a hot abscess (it is much more common), the pus accumulates very quickly and all four signs of inflammation appear: swelling, redness, fever and pain. A cold abscess is characterized by a slow accumulation of fluid in one place without signs of inflammation. Emotional
  8. ABSCESS
    An abscess is a limited inflammation in the tissues or organs, characterized by the accumulation of pus in the newly formed cavity under the dense membrane. An abscess occurs most often after any mechanical damage to the skin (for example, due to a splinter), through which pyogenic microbes penetrate under the skin (staphylococci, streptococci, blue pus, fungus cryptococci, etc.), causing
  9. Zagothy abscess
    Clinical picture. The pharyngeal abscess is a purulent fusion of the lymph nodes and loose tissue of the swallowed space. Particularly common in debilitated children under the age of 2-3 years, rarely in adults. In childhood, it usually occurs after infectious diseases, acute respiratory viral infections, measles, scarlet fever. In adults, pharyngeal abscesses.
  10. Laryngeal abscess
    Laryngeal abscess may be the final stage of phlegmonous laryngitis, but more often it is caused by trauma to the body (fish bone, etc.). An abscess occurs predominantly on the lingual surface of the epiglottis or in the region of one of the cuspid cartilages, usually developing gradually against the background of the general inflammatory response of the body. Complaints come down to pain when swallowing. 2-3 days after injury
  11. ABSCESS OF THE BRAIN
    Clinic. Brain abscess - a limited abscess in the brain tissue - intracerebral, or epidural, subdural. It is called streptococci, staphylococci, pneumococci, etc. Pathogenetically, contact (otogenic), metastatic (pneumonia, lung abscess), bronchiectasis abscesses and abscesses that occur during open cranial brain injuries,
  12. Otogenic intracranial abscesses
    Extradural abscess is called the accumulation of pus between the dura mater and bone. It occurs as a result of the spread of the inflammatory process from the mastoid process and the tympanic cavity into the cranial cavity and is localized in the middle or in the posterior cranial fossa. Extradural abscess is usually a complication of chronic suppurative otitis media; often observed in this case
