some fact about this disease..


Follicular Tonsillitis.

Definition.—An inflammation of the mucous membrane covering the tonsils and lining the crypts or follicles of the gland.

Etiology.—This occurs most frequently between the ages of ten and twenty-five (yeah..im 21=.=),  Exposure to wet and cold( i guess now here in egypt..we are having winter season). . Bad hygienic surroundings, especially where the sewerage is defective, allowing the escape of sewer-gas, is also thought to be a fruitful cause (bad hygiene??ermm..maybe..depan rumah sekarang sangat2la berdebu..sebab ade construction..and eypt rumah mmg rapat2 je bangunan..=.=).

Pathology.—The lacunae are filled with a cheesy substance, consisting of epithelial cells and various micrococci, and, protruding from the crypts, give the tonsil a spotted appearance; the mucous membrane between the crypts is bright red, and bathed with a creamy pus, sometimes resembling a membrane, and may be mistaken for diphtheria, though the ease with which it may be wiped off should allay all doubts as to its character. Sometimes calcareous degeneration occurs, and limy or chalky deposits fill the lacunae.

Symptoms.—This is more severe than the catarrhal form, and is usually ushered in with a chill, followed by rather a high grade of fever considering the local character of the disease. During the initiatory stage the patient complains of aching all over the body, and one who is subject to the disease will diagnose his own case before there is much local trouble(true!!!!!).
The throat soon becomes sore and stiff, the pain extending to the ear(this is what i feel!!); the tonsil or tonsils are red, angry-looking, with yellowish spots (and i have this tooo=(  ), the cheesy exudate showing from the crypt. Swallowing is difficult( yup2), and respiration is more or less impaired; the lymphatics are generally involved. . The disease reaches its height by the fourth or fifth day, then gradually declines, the patient being convalescent by the end of the second week.
Figure 26. Follicular Tonsillitis.

The clinical picture is a surer guide than the Klebs-Loemer bacillus, as it is well known that this germ may reside in other than diphtheretic throats.
Prognosis.—The prognosis is favorable, the disease rapidly yielding to specific treatment in from three to five days.


i really hope i could heal from this disease immediately...insyaallah...
