Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery, Tulane University Medical Center, New Orleans, LA.

Peritonsillar abscess (PTA) is a common occurrence in adult patients, and an important question in such often-seen disease processes is whether we are treating these patients effectively, efficiently, and economically. We sought to determine if a diagnostic computed tomography (CT) scan was associated with a difference in clinical intervention in adult patients with PTA and if CT was associated with delaying this intervention. We conducted a retrospective case-control study examining therapeutic interventions in adults with PTA. Read More

Introduction: It remains unclarified if bacterial co-infection is common in patients with infectious mononucleosis (IM) and acute tonsillitis and/or peritonsillar abscess (PTA). Recent studies suggest that Fusobacterium necrophorum is a prevalent pathogen in acute tonsillitis and PTA. We hypothesised that this anaerobe may play a significant role for the aggravated infection and the development of PTA among teenagers and young adults with IM. Read More

Peritonsillar abscess (PTA) is a difficult diagnosis to make clinically, with clinical examination of even otolaryngologists showing poor sensitivity and specificity. Machine learning is a form of artificial intelligence that "learns" from data to make predictions. We developed a machine learning classifier to predict the diagnosis of PTA based on patient symptoms. Read More

Acta Otolaryngol 2019 Sep 26;139(9):798-802. Epub 2019 Jun 26.

a Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Helsinki University Hospital , Helsinki , Finland.

The purpose of this prospective study was to determine if there is a difference in number and distribution of salivary bacteria between patients with tonsillar infection and healthy volunteers. The etiology of peritonsillar abscess (PTA) is unclear. Smoking, periodontal disease, and infection of minor salivary glands have been suggested as predisposing factors for PTA. Read More

The usefulness of abscess tonsillectomy followed by intraoral drainage for parapharyngeal abscess concomitant with peritonsillar abscess in the elderly.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2019 Jun 22. Epub 2019 Jun 22.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Kagoshima University Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, 8-35-1 Sakuragaoka, Kagoshima 890-8520, Japan.

Parapharyngeal abscess (PPA) may cause life-threatening complications and peritonsillar abscess (PTA) and tonsillitis frequently precede PPA. The optimal management of PPA caused by PTA has been the subject of debate with respect to the surgical approach. We present three cases of PPA concomitant with PTA in elderly patients. Read More

Hospital admissions for acute throat and deep neck infections versus tonsillectomy rates in Germany.

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Sep 12;276(9):2519-2530. Epub 2019 Jun 12.

Private Practice, Bad Honnef, Germany.

Purpose: To evaluate trends in hospital admissions in Germany for acute infections of the upper airway and deep neck in the context of the number of tonsil-related surgical procedures between 2005 and 2017.

Methods: A retrospective longitudinal population-based cohort study was performed including all unplanned admissions for acute pharyngitis/tonsillitis, abscess formation of the peritonsillar or retropharyngeal/parapharyngeal space. Elective procedures included tonsillectomy (with or without adenoidectomy), secondary tonsillectomy, and tonsillotomy. Read More

Peritonsillar abscess in an infant with congenital bone marrow failure.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Sep 29;124:200-202. Epub 2019 May 29.

Department of Paediatric Otorhinolaryngology, Nottingham Children's Hospital, Nottingham University Hospitals, Derby Road, Nottingham, NG7 2UH, UK.

Peritonsillar abscess is extremely rare in infants and is potentially life-threatening. We report the case of a 3 month old infant with a background of congenital bone marrow failure who presented with sepsis and desaturation requiring intubation and PICU care. Ultrasound and CT scan revealed an inflammatory mass. Read More

Klinik und Poliklinik für Hals‑, Nasen- und Ohrenkrankheiten, plastische und ästhetische Operationen, Universitätsklinikum Würzburg, Josef-Schneider-Str. 11, 97080, Würzburg, Deutschland.

Background: Primary immunodeficiency is a rare disease of humoral and cellular immune defense, which can lead to severe and recurrent infections of different organs. The diagnosis of this disease is often difficult, and its early identification is necessary for adequate treatment and control.

Objective: This study aimed to analyze ear, nose, and throat (ENT) infections in adults and children with a primary immunodeficiency. Read More

Role of Phosphorylcholine-Specific Immunoglobulin M in Acute Upper Respiratory Tract Infections.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2019 Jun;128(6_suppl):111S-116S

1 Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Kagoshima University Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Kagoshima, Japan.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to clarify the role of serum phosphorylcholine (PC)-specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) as a natural antibody against infectious diseases.

Methods: The relationship between serum PC-specific IgM level and C-reactive protein level or white blood cell counts was examined in patients with severe upper respiratory tract infections (ie, acute epiglottitis and peritonsillar abscess).

Results: PC-specific IgM level was significantly negatively correlated with C-reactive protein level and white blood cell count. Read More

We describe the case of a young boy with severe clinical symptoms which mimicked several findings consistent with a peritonsillar abscess (PTA). After the patient exhibited no improvement with medical management, imaging revealed an intramuscular medial pterygoid abscess secondary to parapharyngeal space lymphadenitis. This is the first reported case of a patient with a medial pterygoid abscess secondary to lymphadenitis. Read More

Comparison of inpatient versus outpatient management of pediatric peritonsillar abscess outcomes.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Aug 25;123:47-50. Epub 2019 Apr 25.

Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, OH, USA. Electronic address:

Introduction: Peritonsillar abscess (PTA) in pediatric patients is a challenging condition to diagnose and treat, and recurrence can occur in up to 15% of patients. This condition can be managed in various settings and there may be outcome differences depending on the choice of inpatient/outpatient management. The objective of this study was to evaluate immediate and long-term outcomes, specifically recurrence, after PTA management in the inpatient versus outpatient setting as well as specific patient characteristics leading to hospital management decisions.

Arch Argent Pediatr 2019 06;117(3):e297-e300

Hospital Policial Churruca Visca, Ciudad de Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Peritonsillar abscess is the most common complication of acute bacterial tonsillitis, defined as the presence of purulent exudate between the peritonsillar capsule and the superior constrictor muscle of the pharynx. Usually, its presentation is unilateral; its bilateral involvement is rare. It is more common in adults, being uncommon in children. Read More

Objectives: The objective of this study is to examine the impact that an institution-wide policy to reduce radiation exposure in pediatric patients had on the use of computed tomography (CT) imaging in children presenting with suspected peritonsillar abscess (PTA)1.

Methods: A single institution retrospective review was conducted for all pediatric patients under the age of 18 who presented to the emergency department with suspected PTA over a ten-year period. Patients were divided into two groups; those that presented during the years prior to policy implementation and those that presented during the years following. Read More
