Tonsils are collections of lymphoid tissue located on both sides of throat. The set of lymphatic tissue known as waldeyer’s ring includes the adenoid tonsils, two tubal tonsils , two palatine tonsils, and the lingual tonsil .Tonsils are the immunocompetent tissues. These are the immune system’s first line of defense against ingested or inhaled foreign pathogens(Recent studies have shown that the tonsils produce T lymphocytes, also known as T-cells, in a manner similar to, but different from, the way the thymus does). They act like soldier’s when any bacteria or foreign material enter the mouth and fight with bacteria nd germs present in food to prevent infection. Kids between the age of 3- 14 are more prone to enlarged and recurrent tonsil infection. Tonsils can enlarge frequently and tends to subside of its own without causing any symptoms; but in certain patients they remain enlarged particularly in those kids who suffer from chronic and recurrent throat infections. Symptoms of chronic tonsillitis may vary depending upon the size (enlarged tonsils) of infected tonsils. Sore throat, red swollen tonsils, pain when swallowing, high temperature (fever), coughing, headache, tiredness, chills, a general sense of feeling unwell (malaise), white pus -filled spots on the tonsils (tonsilloliths), swollen lymph nodes in the neck, pain in the ears or neck.
