About this section


Disease Ontology:9 An upper respiratory tract disease which involves inflammation of the tonsils resulting from bacterial (group a streptococcus) and viral (epstein-barr virus, adenovirus) infections. symptoms include a severe sore throat (which may be experienced as referred pain to the ears), painful/difficult swallowing, coughing, headache, myalgia (muscle aches), fever and chills. tonsillitis is characterized by signs of red, swollen tonsils which may have a purulent exudative coating of white patches (i.e. pus). swelling of the cheeks and neck may occur.

MalaCards based summary: Tonsillitis, also known as chronic tonsillitis, is related to otitis media and sinusitis. An important gene associated with Tonsillitis is CD79A (CD79a molecule, immunoglobulin-associated alpha), and among its related pathways are Prion diseases and Defensins. The drug ceftibuten dihydrate and the compounds ebselen and hbd2 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include tonsil, b cells and t cells, and related mouse phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and hematopoietic system.
