Hemorrhagic tonsillitis is a rare complication of acute or chronic tonsillitis and could be fatal in some cases. Few cases were reported in the literature. Here we present a seven years old female child who was presented with bilateral tonsillar hemorrhage and a history of chronic recurrent tonsillitis. Her investigations and management are discussed. Key words: Hemorrhagic, Streptococcus, Tonsillitis, Bleeding JRMS February 2010, 17(Supp 1): 33-34 The tonsils are lymph tissues located on either side of the back of the throat. Their functions are to destroy microorganisms entering the nose and throat. Most episodes of acute pharyngotonsillitis are viral. Group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus is the most common cause of bacterial infection in the tonsils. Others causes are beta-hemolytic Streptococcus species (Lancefield Groups, Group C or B),(1,2) Staphylococcus aureus, gram-negative organisms and Mycoplasma pneumonia are other causes.(1) Hemorrhagic tonsillitis, which is a complication of acute or chronic tonsillitis, is almost always found in association with peritonsillar abscess and is rarely reported in the new antibiotic era. It is a serious condition and could be fatal in some cases if hemorrhage was not controlled from tonsillar blood vessels.(3) Here we report the case of a seven years old female child with severe toxicity, follicular tonsillitis, and bleeding tonsils that presented to our emergency pediatric clinic, and was diagnosed as a case of hemorrhagic tonsillitis. A seven years old female child presented to our outpatient’s pediatric clinic with high fever, toxicity, malaise, inability to swallow, and sore throat. Physical examination showed a blood pressure of 90/40mmHg, pulse 100/minute and axillary temperature of 39 degrees Celcius. Throat examination showed follicular tonsillitis with bleeding tonsils (Fig.1). An otorhinolaryngologist (ENT) doctor was consulted and otopharyngeal examination showed hugely enlarged, swollen, congested and bluish tonsils bilaterally with whitish debris on both of them. There were diffuse superficial oozing points on both tonsils and bilateral tender and enlarged cervical lymph nodes. A pack soaked with 2% hydrogen peroxide was applied locally for both sides and silver nitrate cautery was done which controlled the bleeding points. Her throat swab showed alpha-hemolytic Streptococcus, no serological typing for the isolated Streptococcus was done. Complete blood count showed Leucocytosis with neutrophilia. Her prothrombin time (PT) and partial thromboplastin time (PTT) were normal.
Childrens Orthopaedic problem need an understanding not only of the ailment but also understanding the psyche of children to enable them to get better and for them to have confidence in their doctor.
H1N1 Influenza Virus, H1N1 Vaccine and Mitochondrial Disease There have been questions regarding recommendations about people with mitochondrial disease receiving the H1N1 vaccine. The Scientific and Medical Advisory Board (SMAB) of the UMDF did discuss the issue in great detail and these comments reflect the board’s discussion. Much of the factual information has been obtained from governmental websites. The H1N1 virus, also called “the swine flu” typically causes fever, cold symptoms (cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose), body aches, loss of appetite, and headache. As with any fever, chills may be present. Fatigue is part of most flu illnesses. Vomiting and diarrhea are reported in some and there are now cases where people have respiratory symptoms without a fever. These symptoms range from mild to severe. There are some people that get sick, but never are sick enough to think about seeing a doctor, whereas others with the same virus will die as a result of their infection. At this point it is not possible to know if the infection will spread to epidemic proportions, or if the virus, which now seems as “bad” as most influenza viruses but no worse, will shift to a strain that will cause more or less severe disease. If you think anyone in the family may have the H1N1 virus, we advise that you seek out immediate medical attention. As part of general medical practice, both fever and dehydration should be treated with standard medical management. Sometimes bedrest, ibuprofen or acetaminophen and fluids are what will be recommended. Use of antiviral medication is given for more severe cases (which are believed to be safe in those with a mitochondrial disorder). For those people that have shown to be susceptible to regression after dehydration, the use of IV hydration and appropriate IV rehydration therapies is reasonable. Aspirin should be avoided.
Eating too much or not eating enough as a way of dealing with stress can make it hard for you to take care of yourself and your diabetes. Stress and some foods, like white rice, white bread, cookies, pies, or cake, can all raise your blood sugar level. Not eating enough food can cause low blood sugar. If you have diabetes, it is important that you make healthy food choices to keep your blood sugar levels under control. Be aware of the times when you feel down and the kinds of foods you eat when you are stressed. If you ﬁnd that you eat high-calorie foods when you are feeling down, try having healthy foods around the house to snack on. Healthy snacks include non-fat/no sugar ice cream, whole wheat bread or crackers, low-fat cheese, or half a banana. ❑ Choose whole grain foods— whole wheat bread and crackers, oatmeal, brown rice, and cereals. Tips to Handle Stress When you feel stressed: ❑ Limit the amount of solid fats and sugars when cooking or eating by trimming fat from meat, using less butter or margarine, and using less sugar. ❑ Make your meals lighter by using nonfat or low-fat milk, cheese, or mayonnaise. Use cooking spray instead of oil. • Talk with an elder about your concerns. ❑ Eat a healthy snack between meals. • Be with others that you have fun with. ❑ Choose water to drink. • Do something nice for someone else. • Take a nature walk. • Learn a new activity, like ﬁshing, horseback riding, or some other things that you might enjoy doing with others. Be sure to also talk to your health care team (diabetes educator, dietitian, doctor, nurse, psychologist, or social worker), your spiritual counselor, or some other person that you trust. They can help you get the support you need.
