Many immunologists indicate that tonsillectomy (TE) performed in patients with allergy has an unfavourable impact on the development of allergy and asthma. This warning has significantly decreased the number of TE in children, and resulted in an increase in the occurrence of peritonsillar abscesses, and high incidence of obstructive breathing disturbances during sleep associated with developmental physical and mental consequences in children. The subjective of this study was to find out the influence of TE on the development of allergy in 29 children, in whom their allergy was confirmed 1-5 years after TE...

OBJECTIVE: To find out whether previous adenoidectomy is associated with asthma, allergic symptoms or allergen-specific IgE antibodies. RECRUITMENT AND METHODS: We recruited 213 paediatric patients admitted for elective tonsillectomy and 155 paediatric controls. Using a structured questionnaire, we recorded their respiratory symptoms, allergies, bronchial asthma and environmental factors. Serum IgE antibodies against respiratory allergens were screened. Patients were divided into those previously adenoidectomised (n = 100) or not adenoidectomised (n = 113)...

BACKGROUND: The decline of infections in childhood may contribute to the rising severity and prevalence of atopic disorders in developed countries. With this regard, we examined the relationship of frequent tonsillitis and consequent tonsillar hyperplasia with the development of asthma. METHODS: Sixty-seven asthmatic children (ages 3-14) who had no signs or symptoms of acute tonsillitis were included. The control group consisted of 92 randomly selected children who had no signs or symptoms of asthma or acute tonsillitis...

OBJECTIVES: Tonsillectomy is one of the most common operations performed in pediatric population. One of the most prevalent tonsillectomy complications is early or delayed post-operative hemorrhage. Other important morbidity is post-operative pain. Historically, honey has been used for wound control, reducing the inflammation, and healing acceleration. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of honey on reducing pain after tonsillectomy in children 5-15 years old. METHODS: After tonsillectomy, 80 patients were randomly divided in two equal groups...

UNLABELLED: Mouth breathers use the oral cavity as their principal breathing route. The main causes include: adenotonsillar hypertrophy and inflammatory diseases such as allergic rhinitis. OBJECTIVE: To look for atopy, the main allergens involved and to check for atopy as a comorbidity with the degree of hypertrophy of the tonsils and adenoids in mouth breathers. METHOD: A historical cohort study with cross-sectional review of 308 medical charts of patients treated at a mouth breather care center of a tertiary hospital in the period of 2008-2010...

We hypothesized, allergic reactions of the tonsillar mucosa may cause secondary lymphoid hypertrophy in children. To evaluate this, we compared tonsil sizes and skin prick test results. Children of ages 6-12 years were divided into two groups according to the results of the skin prick tests (SPT), as atopic and non-atopic groups. All tonsil sizes were evaluated by the same observer using the Brodsky L. Scala. No statistically meaningful difference was found between the tonsil sizes of the atopic and the non-atopic groups of children...

BACKGROUND: There was a lack of convincing evidence supporting the influence of allergy on the adenotonsillar hypertrophy (ATH). We investigated the presence of specific IgE (sIgE) in the serum and adenotonsillar tissues in children with ATH. METHODS: A Pharmacia ImmunoCAP system was used to test sIgE against 31 allergens in the serum in 83 children with ATH before adenotonsillectomy. sIgE against 15 representative allergens were detected in adenotonsillar tissues from 20 of those children...

BACKGROUND: Previous reports have established the association of allergy with adenoidal and tonsillar hypertrophy, and adenotonsillar hypertrophy is a well known co-morbid factor in patients with allergic rhinitis. Very little is known about the association of history of allergy with timing of first presentation in adenotonsillitis patients. SETTING: Tertiary care urban referral hospital. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive analysis of prospectively collected data...

OBJECTIVES: Tonsil and adenoid are part of waldeyers ring; the basic function of which are antibody formation, which later react against a grat variety of antigens. The Adenotonsillectomy is the most common operation in small children but the exact reasons of adenotonsillar hypertrophy remains unknown, some researches have shown that allergy may be at risk factor for adenotonsillar hypertrophy. METHODS: Thorough one year two separated groups of children at the ENT and allergy ward of childrens hospital was enrolled in the study...

Adenoids and/or tonsil inflammation with concomitant obstructive hypertrophy is one of the oldest and most common pediatric problems. Adenoids are a component of Waldeyer's ring and because of their anatomic position can be relevant in the pathogenesis of otitis media when they are inflamed and/or enlarged. Adenoid pads can create mechanical eustachian tube obstruction. Therefore, in some cases, adenoidectomy may have a role in the clinical management of otitis media with effusion. However, eustachian tube dysfunction related to the adenoids may also have an allergy-related functional component...

The tonsils are part of Waldeyer's ring, the basic function of which is antibody formation; they react later against a wide variety of antigens. Allergic sensitization of the airways occurs not only in the mucosa of the afflicted organ, but also in the lymphatic stations draining these structures. The lymphatic structures closest to the nasal mucosa in humans are the adenoids and tonsils. Adenoidal, nasal, and middle ear diseases are frequent health problems in young children. Pediatric adenoidal obstruction of the nasal airway is associated with significant morbidity and is also a frequent indication for surgery...

The diagnosis of food allergy is difficult because it is a multifaceted problem and is incompletely understood. Both upper and lower respiratory tracts can be affected by food allergy. The importance of bacterial allergy of the upper respiratory tract is however one of the most controversial problems in allergology. The palatine tonsils play an important role in immunologic surveillance and resistance to infection in the upper aerodigestive tract. The role of enlarged adenoids and tonsils in upper airway obstruction has become well-established earlier, thus, adenoidectomy with, or without, tonsillectomy is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in the paediatric population...

Tonsils and adenoid are part of Waldeyer's ring, the basic function of which is antibody formation, they react later against a great variety of antigens. The role of enlarged adenoids and tonsils in upper airway obstruction has become well-established earlier, thus, adenoidectomy with, or without, tonsillectomy is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in the paediatric population. Research done in respect to Waldeyer's ring on people dealing at the same time with allergy, is seldom the subject of dissertation in polish as well as world wide medical literature...
