Caption

Photograph showing the mouth of a man suffering from tonsillitis, inflammation of the tonsils due to viral or bacterial infection. The tonsils appear swollen and red. Symptoms include sore throat, fever, and difficulty in swallowing. The tonsils are the two masses of sponge-like lymphoid tissue on either side of the back of the mouth. They play a role in the bodies response to infection by producing antibodies for the immune system and also by serving to trap and destroy any micro-organisms that should enter the throat.
