Tonsillitis, general infection
Tonsillitis is an acute or chronic inflammation of the tonsils, typically caused by bacteria, usually Streptococcus, but may also be caused by viral infection. The onset is sudden with pain on swallowing, chilliness and fever. The tonsils become enlarged and exude a whitish, purulent substance and the glands of the throat may become tender and swollen.
