66 Possible Causes for Tonsillar Mass

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    Both patients presented with tonsillar mass. Histologically, in one case, the tonsil showed diffuse proliferation of medium-sized lymphocytes.[] Boston, Mass: Blackwell Scientific Publications; 1969. Chaganti S, Heath EM, Bergler W, Kuo M, Buettner M, Niedobitek G, et al.[] Epstein-Barr virus colonization of tonsillar and peripheral blood B-cell subsets in primary infection and persistence. Blood . 2009 Jun 18. 113(25):6372-81. [Medline] .[]

  • Carcinoma of the Tonsil

    A 67-year-old Hispanic woman was discovered to have an asymptomatic right tonsillar mass on routine clinic visit that revealed HCCC on biopsy.[] Here, we present a case report of a pedunculated tonsillar mass in a nearly asymptomatic patient that was present for 2 years prior to removal.[] A biopsy of the tonsillar mass was performed and histologic examination revealed small round to oval tumor cells were arranged in cords or nests, containing hyperchromatic[]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Very interestingly, the tonsillar mass was also confirmed as the metastatic lesion of SCLC. Chemotherapy for SCLC and medical treatment for IPF were applied.[] Chest computed tomography revealed 2 masses in the left lower lobe, 1 mass in the right upper lobe, and multiple enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes of the lung accompanying[]

  • Tonsillar Abscess

    Quinsy abscess Needle aspiration: All such patients require needle aspiration of the tonsillar mass and cultures.[]

  • Peritonsillar Abscess

    Quinsy abscess Needle aspiration: All such patients require needle aspiration of the tonsillar mass and cultures.[] All such patients require needle aspiration of the tonsillar mass and cultures. Aspiration of pus differentiates abscess from cellulitis.[]

  • Burkitt Lymphoma

    AIMS: To report a case detailing the early histopathogenesis of Burkitt lymphoma (BL), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) positive, in the clinical setting of HIV infection. METHODS AND RESULTS: We describe a 57 year-old woman with newly diagnosed HIV infection who presented with unilateral localized axillary lymphadenopathy.[…][]

  • Parapharyngeal Abscess

    The disease of parapharyngeal abscess is well known to the otolaryngologist and is commonly managed via transoral, transcervical, or combined incision and drainage. We report a novel approach to an abscess that was drained through the external auditory canal (EAC). An otherwise healthy 2-year-old female presented[…][]

  • Oropharyngeal Cancer

    Invited Review First Online: 03 July 2012 Abstract Perhaps one of the most important developments in head and neck oncology of the past decade is the demonstration that patients with human papillomavirus (HPV)-mediated oropharyngeal cancers have significantly improved outcomes, compared to HPV-negative[…][]

  • Ovarian Androblastoma 

    Electron microscopic study of the tonsillar mass revealed crystalloid structures suggestive of the Leydig cell origin of the tumor.[] Abstract Structural pattern of a tonsillar tumor found in a 67-year-old female was similar to a small ovarian androblastoma diagnosed histologically 6 1/2 years earlier.[]

  • Follicular Dendritic Cell Sarcoma

    It should be included in the differential diagnosis of any tonsillar mass in adults.[] The differential diagnosis of a tonsillar mass must include FDCS.[] Ultrastructural studies were not performed in the tonsillar neoplasms but were supportive of FDC sarcoma in the retroperitoneal mass.[]
