Gangrenous tonsillitis in children
- 7 Downloads
Gangrene of the tonsil is one of the most fatal conditions of the throat occurring in children especially in those with lowered resistance. To recognise and distinguish this condition from the other ulcero-membranous conditions of the throat is extremely important not only to pronounce the probable prognoses, but to chalk out the correct line of treatment. A case of gangrene of the right tonsil with uneventful recovery has been presented. The combination of Broadspectrum antibiotics with anabolic therapy appears to be mainly responsible for the recovery of the child.
