Etiology of acute tonsillitis

The main pathogenic bacteria are hemolytic streptococcus B, staphylococcus and pneumococcus. Adenovirus can also cause this disease. Mixed infections of bacteria and viruses are not uncommon. Bacteria may be invaded by the outside world or hidden in tonsil recess. When the body's resistance suddenly decreases due to cold, humidity, overwork, physical weakness, excessive tobacco and alcohol, harmful gas stimulation and other factors, the reproduction of bacteria is strengthened. Sometimes it is the precursor symptom of acute infectious diseases, such as measles and scarlet fever. Acute tonsillitis is often repeated acute attacks on the basis of chronic tonsils.
