Abstract

Actinomycosis has been known to involve virtually every anatomic site in the body. Although actinomycosis has been identified in resected tonsils, its possible role in adeno-tonsillar disease has received little attention. A clinicopathological study of 302 patients who had adeno-tonsillar surgery is presented. Tonsillar actinomycosis was present in 86 (28.5%) patients. The statistical analysis revealed a significant association (P
