Tonsillitis refers to inflammation of the tonsils, two oval-shaped pads of tissue at the back of the throat — one tonsil on each side. Swollen tonsils, sore throat, difficulty swallowing and tender lymph nodes on the sides of the neck are signs of tonsilitis.
The tonsils are the immune system’s first line of defense against bacteria and viruses that enter mouth. This function make the tonsils particularly vulnerable to infection and inflammation. However, the tonsil’s immune system function declines after puberty such as a factor that may account for the rare cases of tonsillitis in adults.
