Paratonsillar abscess


Clinical picture
It arises as a further development of paratonsillitis due to purulent fusion of paratonsillar infiltrate. It may be complicated by bleeding, the development of mediastinitis and tonsillogenic sepsis.
Sore throat is worse when swallowing and opening the mouth. Eating is difficult. Body temperature rises sharply. Maxillary lymph nodes enlarge, 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 the healthy side (the disease is most often one-sided).
Urgent Care
Along with the local use of heat, intramuscular injections of penicillin or the appointment of antibiotics, surgical intervention is necessary - opening a matured abscess.
After opening the abscess, disinfectant rinses the oropharynx with a 0.02% solution of furatsilin.

Paratonsillar abscess

  1. Paratonsillar abscess (paratonsillitis)
    This disease is also called phlegmonous tonsillitis. Between the capsule of the tonsil and the pharyngeal fascia, the distance between which is normally 0.5-1 cm, is located paratonsillar tissue, and behind the pharyngeal fascia, laterally, there is fiber of the parapharyngeal space. These spaces are made of fiber, the inflammation of which, and in the final stage, and abscess formation determines the clinic
  2. Pharyngeal and paratonsillar abscesses
    A pharyngeal abscess develops as a result of a purulent lesion of deep pharyngeal lymph nodes and loose fiber located in the pharyngeal space. These lymph nodes are regional for the posterior sections of the nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, auditory tube, middle ear, nasal pharynx and palatine tonsils. A pharyngeal abscess may occur in newborns, but
  3. Paratonsillar abscesses. Types, Technique and features of surgical treatment
    A paratoillar abscess is an acute inflammation of the paratonsillar tissue and surrounding tissues as a result of infection from lacunae or suppurative tonsils follicles. Usually it is a complication of angina. Types of paratonsillar abscesses 1. Upper (anteroposterior) paratonsillar abscess. It is observed most often. It is formed between the anteroposterior

    {foto33} Treatment outcome: Clinical criteria for improving the patient's condition: 1. Normalization of temperature. 2. Normalization of laboratory parameters. 3. Improving 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 leaf 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, subdural empyema is often accompanied by an epidural abscess. Major causative agents The most common cause of
  6. Abscess
    Abscess (abscessus), abscess, abscess - a limited cavity filled with pus, resulting from focal purulent fusion of tissues. Etiology. The cause of abscesses is the penetration of microorganisms into tissues with damage to the skin and mucous membrane and when foreign bodies enter the tissue. They can be introduced during medical manipulations (injections, subcutaneous infusions) made
  7. Abscess
    Physical blockage An abscess is a collection of pus in one place. Distinguish between hot and cold abscesses. With a hot abscess (it occurs much more often), pus accumulates very quickly and all four signs of inflammation appear: swelling, redness, temperature and pain. A cold abscess is characterized by a slow accumulation of fluid in one place with no signs of inflammation. Emotional
  8. ABSCESS
    An abscess is a limited inflammation in tissues or organs, characterized by an accumulation of pus in a newly formed cavity under a dense membrane. An abscess most often occurs after any mechanical damage to the skin (for example, due to a splinter), through which pyogenic microbes (staphylococci, streptococci, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, cryptococcus fungi, etc.) penetrate the skin, causing
  9. Pharyngeal abscess
    Clinical picture Pharyngeal abscess is a purulent fusion of the lymph nodes and loose tissue of the pharyngeal space. It is especially common in debilitated children under the age of 2-3 years, rarely in adults. In childhood, usually occurs after infectious diseases, acute respiratory viral infections, measles, scarlet fever. In adults, pharyngeal abscesses
  10. Abscess of the larynx
    An abscess of the larynx may be the final stage of phlegmonous laryngitis, but more often it is caused by a body injury (fish bone, etc.). An abscess occurs mainly on the lingual surface of the epiglottis or in the region of one of the arytenoid cartilages, and usually develops gradually against the background of a general inflammatory reaction of the body. Complaints boil down to pain when swallowing. 2-3 days after injury
  11. Brain Abscess
    Clinic. An abscess of the brain is a limited abscess in the brain tissue - intracerebral, or epidural, subdural. It is caused by streptococci, staphylococci, pneumococci, etc. Contact pathogens (otogenically determined), metastatic (pneumonia, lung abscess), bronchiectatic abscesses and abscesses arising from open craniocerebral injuries are distinguished pathogenetically.
  12. Otogenic intracranial abscesses
    An extradural abscess is the accumulation of pus between the dura and the bone. It occurs as a result of the spread of the inflammatory process from the mastoid process and tympanic cavity into the cranial cavity and is localized in the middle or posterior cranial fossae. An extradural abscess is usually a complication of chronic suppurative otitis media; often observed
