Impact of Anti-inflammatory and Antibiotic Therapy on the Emergence of Peri-tonsillar Abscess

2014-08-27 03:20:15 | BioPortfolio


Analyze in children and adults, risk factors in the onset of the APA. The main hypothesis focuses on the use of anti-inflammatory in the context of pharyngitis or sore throat before the symptoms of ABS. Secondary objectives:

1. - Analyze the implementation of a rapid diagnostic test and its result on the occurrence of an ABS

2. - Measure the frequency of prescription and describe the reasons for not prescribing an antibiotic for patients who consulted for a sore throat and having developed a PLA

3. - Describe the microbial flora could puncture of patients hospitalized for APA
