Caption: Scar tissue in nasopharynx. Endoscope view of healing scar tissue (red) in the nasopharynx of a patient who has had repeated adenoidectomies (surgical removal of the adenoids). The adenoids are lumps of lymph tissue located between the nasal cavity and the back of the throat, in the nasopharynx. They are removed when they become enlarged, blocking the airway, or when the patient suffers frequent ear infections or tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils). Very rarely, the adenoids grow back after adenoidectomy and may need to be removed again.
