Laryngeal tonsillitis. Etiopathogenesis, clinic, treatment

Laryngeal tonsillitis is an acute inflammation of the lymphadenoid tissue of the larynx (in the area of ​​scooped-epiglottis folds, the intercarpal space, in the pear-shaped sinuses and individual follicles).


The disease can occur as a result of hypothermia, after the flu, with a trauma to the larynx by a foreign body, etc.


The patient is worried about pain when swallowing, soreness when turning the neck, dry throat. In some cases, one can note a change in voice, hoarseness, difficulty breathing. Laryngeal stenosis occurs relatively rarely. Body temperature is increased to 37.5-38 ° C, the pulse is increased, there are chills, sweating. Palpation of the neck can reveal enlarged, sharply painful lymph nodes, usually on one side. With laryngoscopy, hyperemia and infiltration of the mucous membrane of the larynx are determined on one side or on its limited area.
Sometimes there are

individual follicles with spotted patches are visible. With a prolonged course of the disease, the formation of abscesses on the lingual surface of the epiglottis, scooped-epiglottis fold or other area is possible.


The same as in acute catarrhal laryngitis. However, in severe cases, massive antibacterial therapy is needed. With significant stenosis, a tracheostomy is indicated.

Sick before] Hedgehog observe a home regimen that spares a diet. Heat is put on the neck, alkaline inhalations are prescribed. Anti-inflammatory therapy includes the introduction of sulfonamides, antibiotics. Mandatory hyposensitizing treatment.

Laryngeal tonsillitis. Etiopathogenesis, clinic, treatment

  1. Laryngeal tonsillitis
    Laryngeal tonsillitis (angina laryngis) is an acute inflammation of the lymphadenoid tissue of the larynx (in the area of ​​the scooped palatine folds, the intercarpal space, in the organoid ventricles, in the piriform sinuses and individual follicles). As an independent disease, it is rare, it can occur as a result of hypothermia, after the flu, with TjfeBMe larynx by a foreign body, etc. K l
    Steroid-producing glands, which include the sex glands and adrenal glands, have a common embryonic origin, forming from the urogenital scallop. As a result of the complex process of differentiation, each gland specializes in the dominant synthesis of androgens, estrogens, or corticosteroids. The nature of steroidogenesis in them is determined by a set of different enzymes. Defining
  3. Classification of angina. Treatment principles
    Classification of angina I. According to B.S. Preobrazhensky. It is based on pharyngoscopic signs, supplemented by data obtained in a laboratory study, sometimes with information of an etiological or pathogenetic nature. The following forms of angina are distinguished: catarrhal; follicular; III - lacuna; IV - fibrinous; V - herpetic; VI - phlegmonous

    Bronchial obstructive syndrome is a clinical symptom complex observed in patients with generalized obstruction of bronchial patency, its leading manifestation is expiratory dyspnea, asthma attacks. Diseases accompanied by airway obstruction. The main causes of airway obstruction in children. 1. Obstruction of the upper respiratory tract: 1) acquired: a)

    Pneumoconiosis - due to the development of fibrotic changes in the lungs as a result of prolonged inhalation of the industry. dust. According to the etiology, 6 groups of PCs are distinguished: 1) silicosis-PC from inhalation of silica dust (silicon oxide) 2) silicotosis-PC from inhalation of silica dust, soda-silicon dioxide in a bound state with other elements # astestosis, talcosis. 3) metallokoniosis - PC from dust Me: Al - aluminum, iron oxides - siderosis. 4)

    Clinic - see question 13.2. Treatment of foodborne diseases: 1. Hospitalization according to clinical (patients with severe and moderate forms, sharply weakened and burdened by concomitant pathology) and epidemiological (belonging of patients to closed organized groups, to decreed population groups, the inability to comply with the anti-epidemic regimen at the place of residence)

    Clinic: incubation period from 1 to 6 days. Clinical polymorphism is characteristic. The disease begins acutely without a prodrome. Chills, headache, malaise, weakness, pain in muscles and joints, insomnia, sore throat, loss of appetite appear. Body temperature is low-grade, sometimes up to 38-40 ° С.

    To differentiate each of the purulent forms of the process is practically impossible and inexpedient, since their treatment is fundamentally the same. This is due to the variety of damaging agents and factors, the initial characteristics of the body, with a change in the biological properties of pathogens and the emergence of new methods of exposure (antibiotics, chemotherapeutic drugs, etc.). However, it is always based on

    Influenza - SARS caused by influenza viruses. In addition to humans, they suffer from many mammals (horses, pigs, co-tanks, cattle) and birds. Avian epidemiology: the source of human disease is only a sick person. However, hybridization of animal and human viruses is possible, which leads to variability of the pathogen and the emergence of pandemic dangerous strains. In nature, the main reservoir of viruses

Etiology: Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Mycoplasma hominis, Ureaplasma urealyticum (T-Mycoplasma). Epidemiology: the source of infection is only a person who has mycoplasmosis or a healthy carrier of mycoplasmas. Way

Belongs to the group of zoonoses. Etiology: Brucella melitensis - most often, also Br. abortus, Br. suis, Br. sani - G-sticks. Epidemiology: zoonosis; from a sick person to a healthy one is not

    Otomycosis is a fungal disease caused by the development of various types of mold fungi on the walls of the external auditory meatus: Aspergillus, Penicillium, Khizopus, as well as yeast-like fungi of the genus Candida. Clinic: The obvious symptoms of the pathological process occur when the mycelium grows into the depths of the skin. The main symptoms of otomycosis are usually persistent severe itching in
