Caption: Ulcerated tonsils seen at the back of a patient's mouth during a throat examination. The ulcerated area (white) is at the back of the throat at centre left. The palatine tonsils in the throat are areas of lymphoid tissue that are sensitive to infection. This is a case of Vincent's tonsillitis, or Vincent's angina, a condition where gum disease can lead to inflammation of the tonsils. If the infection and ulceration recurs, the tonsils can be surgically removed.
