Effectiveness of TCM cauterization in recurrent tonsillitis: A protocol for systematic review and meta-analysis

Conclusion: Cauterization can effectively control the recurrence of tonsillitis through clinical trials, but evidence-based medicine needs to be adopted to provide strong evidence for its effectiveness. The purpose of our research is to provide the evidence. OSF Registration number: DOI 10.17605/OSF.IO/PZ69Q.

Abstract Lemierre's syndrome, also known as post-anginal septicemia or necrobacillosis, is characterized by bacteremia, internal jugular vein thrombophlebitis, and metastatic septic emboli secondary to acute pharyngeal infections. Modern physicians have "forgotten" this disease. The most common causative agent of Lemierre's syndrome is Fusobacterium necrophorum, followed by Fusobacterium nucleatum and anaerobic bacteria such as streptococci, staphylococci, and Klebsiella pneumoniae. The causative focus mostly originated from pharyngitis or tonsillitis, accounting for over 85% of the cases of Lemierre's s...

ConclusionAs deep neck space infections can be life-threatening, clinicians must be aware and not underestimate their potential severity. Lemierre's syndrome is a complication difficult to recognize, which requires additional awareness of the many possible presentations, for appropriate diagnostic studies and therapeutic plan.

Abstract Humoral immunological defects are frequent and important causes of hypogammaglobulinemia, leading to recurrent infections, autoimmunity, allergies, and neoplasias. Usually, its onset occurs in childhood or during the second and third decades of life; however, the diagnosis is made, on average, 6 to 7 years afterwards. As a consequence, antibody defects can lead to sequelae. Here we describe the clinical-laboratory characteristics, treatment, and prognoses of patients with hypogammaglobulinemia. An observational, cross-sectional, and retrospective study of patients attending the recently established outpat...

A NEW TREATMENT MODALITY TO REDUCE ACUTE TONSILLITIS HEALING TIME. J Popul Ther Clin Pharmacol. 2019 Jul 15;26(2):e14-e19 Authors: Keskin H, Guvenmez O Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Acute tonsillitis is one of the most common reasons for application to otorhinolaryngology clinics. In the treatment of acute tonsillitis, supportive therapies are mostly used. As antibiotic therapy, penicillin or erythromycin can be used. The aim of this study is to decrease the clinical recovery time of acute tonsillitis by providing parenteral treatment and daily cleaning of tonsillar lesions. MATERIAL AND METHO...

ConclusionsEfficient treatment of severe anaerobic sepsis resulting from descending necrotizing mediastinitis should build on a multidisciplinary approach. In support of first-line therapies with targeted antibiotics and surgical debridement, clinicians should consider alternative therapies such as continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration with cytokine-adsorbing hemofilters and hyperoxygenation.

Conclusions As the intestinal mucosa surface constitutes the major surface of the body which is in direct contact with the outer environment, intestinal immune homeostasis must be accurately regulated. The interplay between commensal microbiota, intestinal stromal cells, and the mucosal immune system components should guarantee the intestinal homeostasis to avoid a sustained inflammation that could induce tissue damage. However, several factors can lead to inflammation through homeostasis breakdown. Figure 1 summarizes the main points that have been reviewed here. We have described what it is known so far about the role o...

Rationale: Glossopharyngeal neuralgia (GPN) is a rare type of neuralgia. Depending on the cause, it is classified as idiopathic GPN and secondary GPN. Secondary GPN can also be caused by a mass effect or inflammation of the tonsils, the innervation area of glossopharyngeal nerve. Patient concerns: The patient was diagnosed idiopathic GPN 8 years ago. The patient had intermittent pain, but the pain was well controlled. From 5 months ago, the pain gradually worsened, the patient complained severe pain which impaired chewing and swallowing function. Diagnoses: Idiopathic GPN, secondary GPN, chronic tonsillitis Interv...

CONCLUSIONS: The results of previous studies on the role of bacteriotherapy in paediatric URTI suggest that the use of bacterial interference phenomena through bacteriotherapy is a feasible, safe approach and deserves proper consideration as a promising therapeutic strategy against URTI.

The objective was to identify the frequency and pattern of antibacterial prescribing in respiratory diseases. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Over a period of two years (divided by the presentation of the clinical guideline standards) data was collected from clinical records of children with respiratory disease. Chi-square tests or Fisher's exact test were used to test associations between variables, statistical significance p
