1. Anatomy and physiology, histology of larynx and pharynx ?

The upper portion of the pharynx, the nasopharynx, extends from the
base of the skull to the upper surface of the soft palate. It includes the
space between the internal nares and the soft palate and lies above
the oral cavity. The adenoids, also known as the pharyngeal tonsils,
are lymphoid tissue structures located in the posterior wall of the
The nasopharynx, oropharynx, and laryngopharynx or larynx can be
seen clearly in this sagittal section of the head and neck.
Polyps or mucus can obstruct the nasopharynx, as can congestion due
to an upper respiratory infection. The eustachian tubes, which connect
the middle ear to the pharynx, open into the nasopharynx. The
opening and closing of the eustachian tubes serves to equalize the
barometric pressure in the middle ear with that of the ambient
The anterior aspect of the nasopharynx communicates through the
choanae with the nasal cavities. On its lateral walls are the pharyngeal
ostia of the auditory tube, somewhat triangular in shape, and bounded
behind by a firm prominence, the torus tubarius or cushion, caused by
the medial end of the cartilage of the tube that elevates the mucous
membrane. Two folds arise from the cartilaginous opening:
the salpingopharyngeal fold, a vertical fold of mucous membrane
extending from the inferior part of the torus and containing the
salpingopharyngeus muscle

the salpingopalatine fold, a smaller fold extending from the superior

part of the torus to the palate and containing the levator veli palatini
muscle. The tensor veli palatini is lateral to the levator and does not
contribute the fold, since the origin is deep to the cartilaginous
Behind the opening of the auditory tube is a deep recess, the
pharyngeal recess (also referred to as the fossa of Rosenmller). On
the posterior wall is a prominence, best marked in childhood, produced
by a mass of lymphoid tissue, which is known as the pharyngeal tonsil.
Superior to the pharyngeal tonsil, in the midline, an irregular flaskshaped depression of the mucous membrane sometimes extends up
as far as the basilar process of the occipital bone, this is known as the
pharyngeal bursa.
The oropharynx lies behind the oral cavity, extending from the uvula to
the level of the hyoid bone. It opens anteriorly, through the isthmus
faucium, into the mouth, while in its lateral wall, between the
Palatoglossal arch and the Palatopharyngeal arch, is the palatine
tonsil. The anterior wall consists of the base of the tongue and the
epiglottic vallecula; the lateral wall is made up of the tonsil, tonsillar
fossa, and tonsillar (faucial) pillars; the superior wall consists of the
inferior surface of the soft palate and the uvula. Because both food
and air pass through the pharynx, a flap of connective tissue called the
epiglottis closes over the glottis when food is swallowed to prevent
aspiration. The oropharynx is lined by non-keratinised squamous
stratified epithelium.
The laryngopharynx, (Latin: pars laryngea pharyngis), is the caudal
part of the pharynx; it is the part of the throat that connects to the
esophagus. It lies inferior to the epiglottis and extends to the location
where this common pathway diverges into the respiratory (larynx) and
digestive (esophagus) pathways. At that point, the laryngopharynx is
continuous with the esophagus posteriorly. The esophagus conducts
food and fluids to the stomach; air enters the larynx anteriorly. During
swallowing, food has the "right of way", and air passage temporarily
stops. Corresponding roughly to the area located between the 4th and
6th cervical vertebrae, the superior boundary of the laryngopharynx is
at the level of the hyoid bone. The laryngopharynx includes three
major sites: the pyriform sinus, postcricoid area, and the posterior
pharyngeal wall. Like the oropharynx above it, the laryngopharynx
serves as a passageway for food and air and is lined with a stratified
squamous epithelium. It is innervated by the pharyngeal plexus.

The vascular supply to the hypopharynx includes the superior thyroid

artery, the lingual artery and the ascending pharyngeal artery. The
primary neural supply is from both the vagus and glossopharyngeal
nerves. The vagus nerve provides a branch termed "Arnolds Nerve"
which also supplies the external auditory canal, thus hypophayrngeal
cancer can result in referred otalgia. This nerve is also responsible for
the ear-cough reflex in which stimulation of the ear canal results in a
person coughing.

Tonsils are lymphoepithelial organs at the opening of the upper
aerodigestive tract. From above downwards, they can be divided into
1. pharyngeal tonsil, adenoid, which lies on the roof and posterior wall
of the nasopharynx
2. tubal tonsil which lies around the eustachain tube
3. palatine tonsil which lies between the anterior and posterior faucial
4. lingual tonsil which lies at the base of the tongue
These lymphoid organs developed from the epithelium of the
primitive oronasal cavity, the mesenchymal stroma and lymphoid cells
then infiltrate these areas. Although the tonsils are present at
embryonal stage, they only acquire their typical structure in the
postnatal period. They begin increasing rapidly in size between the
first and third year of life, with peaks in the third and seventh year.

They involute slowly at early puberty. In contrast to other lymphoid

aggregates, tonsils do not filter lymph.
The palatine tonsil is supplied by the facial artery, ascending
pharyngeal artery, lingual artery and the maxillary artery. Venous
drainage is by the lingual and pharyngeal veins.

Widen crypt:

The human palatine tonsils (PT) are covered by stratified squamous

epithelium that extends into deep and partly branched tonsillar crypts,
of which there are about 10 to 30. The crypts greatly increase the
contact surface between environmental influences and lymphoid
The tonsillar crypts often provide such an inviting environment to
bacteria that bacterial colonies may form solidified "plugs" or "stones"
within the crypts. In particular, sufferers of chronic sinusitis or postnasal drip frequently suffer from these overgrowths of bacteria in the
tonsillar crypts.[medical citation needed] these small whitish plugs,
termed "tonsilloliths" and sometimes known as "tonsil stones".

Infiltration of bacteria on the epithelial tissue lining the tonsils will
cause an inflammatory reaction in the form of the release of
polymorphonuclear leukocytes to form detritus. This detritus is a
collection of leukocytes, dead bacteria and epithelial apart. Clinically

10. DD ?
a. Tonsilitis kronik
The most active phase of tonsils is between age 3 to 10 years and
after that involution begins. Although hyperplasia of tonsils is not a
disease, these organs are found to have a higher incidence of
pathogenic bacteria around the poorly-drained tonsillar crypts
resulting in tonsillitis. Majority of childhood tonsillitis are caused by
group A ]-haemolytic streptococcus (GABHS). Its frequency and

serious consequences such as acute rheumatic fever and

glomerulonephritis make this an important infection. Viral causes are
also common including coxsackievirus, herpesvirus and Epstein-Barr
virus. However, it was found that with recurrent attacks of tonsillitis,
the type and number of organisms changes from a commensal to
greater varieties of bacteria and thus requiring different broadspectrum antibiotics. Therefore the use of throat culture to arrive at
the diagnosis is inaccurate.
Clinically, the patients presented with sorethroat, fever and malaise.
Physical examination may nor may not show enlarged tonsils, but
exudates, erythema are seen. Cervical lymph nodes may be enlarged
and tender.
Definition of recurrent acute tonsillitis is varible. We take more than
4 episodes in one year or 7 episodes in 1 year, 5 episodes per year for
2 years or 3 episodes per year for 3 years .
Recurrent acute tonsillitis and chronic tonsillitis can give rise to
peritonsillar abscess. Further spread of the infection beyond the
peritonsillar space and lateral aspect of tonsillar fossa can lead to
parapharyngeal space abscess. In addition, children under age 3 with
tonsillitis are more susceptible to retropharyngeal space infection.
Affected children will present as irritability, fever, difficulty in breathing
and torticollis.
The most common drug used to treat tonsillitis is amoxicillin. But
with increasing resistance, the use of beta-lactamase inhibitor i.e.
augmentin or unasyn may be needed. Only 32% responds to medical
treatment with 6 months prophylaxis or a prolonged course of 30-days
Decision for surgical intervention in patients with recurrent tonsillitis
should be individualized. When treating paediatric patients, surgeon
should have good communication with parents and provide full
explanation of the procedure. Always ask for family history of bleeding
tendency and other medical problems. Cervical XR should be done for
children with Down's syndrome.
