Acute angina and chronic tonsillitis

Especially children develop viral or bacterial infections of the tonsils. The examination shows inflamed tonsils with a white covering.

Symptoms of a chronic infection are not as characteristic as the acute inflammation. The patient may encounter problems swallowing, recurrent slight throat pain, halitosis or chronic fatigue. In such a case you should see an ENT-specialist. The therapy of chronic angina is the removal of the tonsils.
