chronic caseous tonsillitis

Matthew Ferguson, Murat Aydin, Joseph Mickel
OBJECTIVE: Halitosis secondary to pathology of the palatine tonsils is considered airway (type 2) halitosis in the etiologic classification. Reports differ as to the proportion of objective halitosis complaints that have tonsillar etiology, with some giving this figure as 3%. Due to their immunologic role, even healthy tonsils usually possess some subclinical inflammation. The tonsil crypt system is also the most ideal environment for anaerobic bacterial activity in the upper respiratory tract...

UNLABELLED: Tonsil caseous affects a significant percentage of the population. Surgeries, conservative or not, have been the only viable alternatives of treatment. However, today there is still not, up to now, an economical and non-invasive treatment that presents satisfactory results. AIMS: The objectives of this study are to evaluate the efficiency of a mouthwash, with active ingredients that associate oxygenating and antimicrobial substances, in the reduction of caseous and tongue coating formation, whose etiology is similar to caseous, and to evaluate the reduction of the volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) concentration...

OBJECTIVE: To study the volatile sulphur compounds (VSC) halitometry profile in a population with chronic caseous tonsillitis (CCT) and halitosis and to evaluate the relationship between the presence of a tonsillolith and abnormal halitometry in this population. DESIGN: Clinical prospective non-randomised study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Forty-nine patients with halitosis and CCT, 17 male (35%) and 32 female (65%), were selected among patients referred for CO(2) laser cryptolysis...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of CO(2) laser cryptolysis by coagulation (LCC) treatment in the volatile sulphur compounds (VSC) halitometry in patients with chronic caseous tonsillitis (CCT). BACKGROUND DATA: Caseum retention and halitosis characterize CCT. Failure of clinical treatment indicated tonsillectomy. Recently, a conservative new treatment, CO(2 )LCC, has been introduced. It is painless and opens the crypt ostium, thus avoiding caseum retention...

OBJECTIVE: To perform histopathological evaluation in biopsies of palatine tonsils in a group of patients, with symptoms of chronic caseous tonsillitis, treated with an innovative and conservative method, using CO(2) laser. BACKGROUND DATA: In general, the treatment of chronic caseous tonsillitis with CO(2) laser, as described in the literature, refers to the clinical experience of the authors and, the technique used for criptolysis encourages tissue vaporization, which leads to the consequent reduction of the tonsillar parenchyma...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the clinical manifestations of tuberculosis in the upper aerodigestive tract. DESIGN: Retrospective chart analysis. SETTING: Srinagarind Hospital, Department of Otolaryngology, Faculty of Medicine, Khon Kaen University, Khon Kaen, Thailand. METHODS: A review of medical records of patients diagnosed with mycobacterial infection of the upper aerodigestive tract between January 1991 and December 2000...

A clinical analysis of 6 patients with pathologically confirmed tonsillar tuberculosis was carried out retrospectively. The subjects comprised three men and three women, ranging in age from 20 to 74 years. All of the patients presented with a sore throat and 5 had lymphadenopathy. Ulcerations, masses and white patches characterized the tonsillar lesions; the pathological findings included caseous granuloma with positive acid-fast bacilli (AFB) in 5 patients and chronic granulomatous inflammation with negative AFB in one patient...
