  • Acute Epiglottitis

    The authors present two cases of acute epiglottitis with upper airway obstruction that urgently needed artificial airways.[] We report four cases of acute epiglottitis with a peritonsillar abscess originating from the inferior pole of the palatine tonsil.[] Bacteremia was associated with a high risk of airway obstruction.[]

  • Peritonsillar Abscess

Peritonsillar abscess is most commonly caused by group A β-hemolytic streptococcus.[] Promptly recognizing the infection and initiating therapy are important to avoid potentially serious complications, such as airway obstruction, aspiration, or extension of[]

  • Parapharyngeal Abscess

    Progression of the signs and symptoms is key as it pertains to inflammation and obstruction of the upper airways and/or gastrointestinal tract and there may be dysphagia,[] […] with concurrent peritonsillar abscess.[] A growing abscess can cause noticeable swelling in the neck and significant airway obstruction.[]

  • Tonsillitis

    We describe a case of acute bacterial lingual tonsillitis with airway obstruction complicating infectious mononucleosis.[] […] tonsils are infected in patients with peritonsillar abscess.[] […] diffuse obstructive airway disease.[]

  • Retropharyngeal Abscess

    Prompt diagnosis of RPA especially in infants is mandatory to prevent potential fatal complications including airway obstruction.[] OBJECTIVES: To describe national trends in retropharyngeal abscess (RPA) complicating peritonsillar abscess (PTA) and to determine factors associated with RPA in patients[] ( ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code J36 Peritonsillar abscess 2016 2017 2018 2019 Billable/Specific Code Includes abscess of tonsil peritonsillar cellulitis quinsy Type 1 Excludes[]

  • Tonsillar Hypertrophy

    Abstract Six adults with tonsillar enlargement were shown via all-night polygraphic recordings to have varying degrees of upper airway obstruction during sleep.[] . • On the basis of limited evidence (level C), diagnosis of peritonsillar abscesses can usually be made based on clinical suspicion and laboratory testing/imaging are often[] Hypertrophy of the lingual tonsils is an unusual condition that may cause complications such as airway obstruction, abscess, sleep apnea, and recurrent epiglottitis.[]

  • Upper Airway Obstruction

    Increased work of breathing indicates respiratory distress but does not necessarily signify airway obstruction.[] Pediatric peritonsillar abscess: management guidelines. Curr Probl Pediatr. 1996;26:270–8. PubMed Google Scholar 20. Baldassari C, Shah RK.[] Other possible diagnoses Symptoms Possible Diagnosis High Fever Hyperextension of neck Dysphagia, pooling of secretions in throat epiglottitis retropharyngeal / peritonsillar[]

  • Pharyngitis

    A foul-smelling gray-white pharyngeal membrane may result in airway obstruction.[] Most children with pharyngitis have benign, self-limited disease with infrequent complications such as peritonsillar abscess, mastoiditis, or lymphadenitis.[] Fusobacterium necrophorumFusobacterium necrophorum is a normal inhabitant of the oropharyngeal flora and can occasionally create a peritonsillar abscess.[]
