Caption: Streptococcal tonsillitis. Close up of the mouth of a child showing severe tonsillitis. The tonsils and pharynx appear deep red (centre of photograph). Both tonsils are swollen and are narrowing the throat. A collection of whitish pus is visible on the patient's right tonsil (centre left of photograph) and there is a white coating over the entire surface of the tongue. This painful condition has been caused by a streptococcal infection, diagnosed by taking a throat swab. The bacterium is spread by respiratory droplets and primarily affects children between the ages of five and fifteen. Treatment is with pain killers and antibiotics.
