Tonsillitis - Definition


Definition


Tonsillitis is a very common illness in young children. It indicates an infection of the tonsils, which can be caused by bacteria, but is more often viral. The infection is then due either to a virus, the most frequent case, or to a bacteria. In both cases, the progression is generally toward recovery. The symptoms of tonsillitis include a sore throat, painful swallowing, fever, and digestive problems which occur rarely in children such as abdominal pain or vomiting. Only bacterial tonsillitis can be treated with antibiotics: a quick diagnostic test performed by a doctor is being developed to detect a bacterial infection.
