Caption: Bacterial tonsillitis. Close-up of the mouth of an eighteen year old woman with acute bacterial tonsillitis. Her tonsils (on either side of the throat) are inflamed and pussy. Tonsillitis may be either bacterial or viral, this case was caused by Streptococcus sp. bacteria. It causes a severe sore throat, often accompanied by fever. The tonsils are masses of lymphoid tissue. They are part of the body's immune system and help to protect the throat and upper respiratory tract from infections. Treatment is with antibiotics. In recurrent cases the tonsils may be removed.
