1) Acute tonsillitis may be superficial in which the tonsil is involved as general inflammation of the pharynx or it may be follicular which is very common form where the tonsil become filled with pus and can be seen as small yellowish spots. If the infection spreads into the surrounding tissues, it forms peritonsillar abscess. It is know as quinsy. It is a very painful condition, pain sometimes extending to ear. Tonsillitis is abrupt in onset. It starts with sore-throat, difficult swallowing associated with malaise, fever, headache and pain in limbs. Acute tonsillitis should be carefully differentiated with other types associated with diphtheria, syphilis or certain infectious diseases like scarlet fever.
2) Chronic tonsillitis may occur in persons who had repeated acute attacks. Tonsils form a part of a ring of lymphoid tissue which is situated in the upper air passages working as first line of defense against infection entering either by respiratory or digestive tracts. The second line of defense consists of cervical glands, which drain it. In chronic conditions the inflammation becomes generalised spreading to surrounding organs.
