Bacteriological Study of Acute Follicular Tonsillitis

2020-03-30 04:42:10 | BioPortfolio


The objective of the study is to answer the following questions :-

1. Is there an actual failure rate in tonsillitis treatment with amoxicillin clavulanate ? If yes,

2. What is (are) the possible reason(s) to explain it in our locality ?


Tonsillitis is one of the most common diseases in the throat that occurs in the younger age group .

The predominant bacteria causing tonsillitis are group A b-haemolytic streptococci (GABHS), which are highly susceptible to the penicillin group of antibiotics.

It has been reported in the literature that the rate of penicillin failure has consistently increased from about 7% in the 1950s to almost 40% in the 2000s.

Authors propose many reasons to explain such failure rates e.g. the coexistence of oropharyngeal beta-lactamase producing bacteria .

Although there were no documented reports, it was observed that there are rising reports of failure in treatment of acute follicular tonsillitis by amoxicillin clavulanate.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A fixed-ratio combination of amoxicillin trihydrate (see AMOXICILLIN), an aminopenicillin, and potassium clavulanate (see CLAVULANIC ACID), a beta-lactamase inhibitor, used to treat a broad-spectrum of bacterial infections, especially resistant strains.

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.

The period of the MENSTRUAL CYCLE representing follicular growth, increase in ovarian estrogen (ESTROGENS) production, and epithelial proliferation of the ENDOMETRIUM. Follicular phase begins with the onset of MENSTRUATION and ends with OVULATION.

Sarcoma of FOLLICULAR DENDRITIC CELLS most often found in the lymph nodes. This rare neoplasm occurs predominately in adults.

A disease of the pilosebaceous unit, presenting clinically as grouped follicular papules or plaques with associated hair loss. It is caused by mucinous infiltration of tissues, and usually involving the scalp, face, and neck. It may be primary (idiopathic) or secondary to mycosis fungoides or reticulosis.
