Treatment outcomes of acute streptococcal tonsillitis according to antibiotic treatment. A retrospective analysis of 242,366 cases treated in the community.

"Background" is the most common reason for primary physician visits in the community for acute upper respiratory infections. This review examined whether the type of antibiotic used to treat streptococcal tonsillitis would reduce the burden by reducing the number of additional visits. Aims: To determine the effect of various antibiotic medications for tonsillitis, see additional primary physician visits and the emergence of infectious or inflammatory sequels. The number of additional primary physician visits was up by a number of primary physicians' visits, owing to any cause or specific upper airway infections. IM benzylpenicillin and cephalosporin therapy had the highest incidence rate ratios for additional primary physician visits at 30-days in comparison to penicillin-V. Conclusion Penicillin-V treatment has been associated with fewer primary physician visits than other antibiotic therapy methods.

Is Helicobacter pylori colonization associated with chronic tonsillitis? - A meta-analysis and systematic review.

"Purpose": The aim of this research was to investigate the correlation between Helicobacter pylori colonization of tonsillar tissue in chronic tonsillitis and in non-infectious hyperplastic tonsils. Helicobacter pylori is a key contributor to chronic tonsillitis, compared to non-infectious indications for tonsillectomy for children. Conclusions Helicobacter pylori's positive rate in a chronic tonsillitis patient was significantly higher than that in a general noninfectious group for the pediatric population but not so for adults. We suspect that chronic tonsillitis is likely to be linked to Helicobacter pylori. ".
