Microbiology of Severe Acute Tonsillitis, Peritonsillar Cellulitis, and Infectious Mononucleosis

2016-03-23 07:08:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Prospective, observational study of the microbiology of patients referred to a tertiary care center with severe acute tonsillitis, peritonsillar cellulitis, or infectious mononucleosis.

Description

Patients referred to tertiary care centers with acute throat infections are most often treated with antibiotics. However, very little is know concerning the prevalent pathogens in patients with acute throat infections without abscess formation. Evidence suggests that Fusobacterium necrophorum plays an important role in complications of acute tonsillitis (e.g. peritonsillar abscess), but also uncomplicated acute tonsillitis.

This study aims to explore the throat microbiology of patients with severe acute tonsillitis, peritonsillar cellulitis, or infectious mononucleosis with a special attention to a possible role of Fusobacterium necrophorum.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammation of the tonsils, especially the PALATINE TONSILS but the ADENOIDS (pharyngeal tonsils) and lingual tonsils may also be involved. Tonsillitis usually is caused by bacterial infection. Tonsillitis may be acute, chronic, or recurrent.

Acute types of coxsackievirus infections or ECHOVIRUS INFECTIONS that usually affect children during the summer and are characterized by vesiculoulcerative lesions on the MUCOUS MEMBRANES of the THROAT; DYSPHAGIA; VOMITING, and FEVER.

Infection with group A streptococci that is characterized by tonsillitis and pharyngitis. An erythematous rash is commonly present.

A clinical syndrome with acute abdominal pain that is severe, localized, and rapid onset. Acute abdomen may be caused by a variety of disorders, injuries, or diseases.

INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS. Pancreatitis is classified as acute unless there are computed tomographic or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographic findings of CHRONIC PANCREATITIS (International Symposium on Acute Pancreatitis, Atlanta, 1992). The two most common forms of acute pancreatitis are ALCOHOLIC PANCREATITIS and gallstone pancreatitis.
