IMMUNOLOGIC ASPECTS OF PEDIATRIC TONSIL AND ADENOID DISEASE
The mechanisms responsible for adenoids and tonsils hypertrophy still remain a research debate, but lots of published papers show that the proliferative processes in obstructing pharyngeal tonsils are differently regulated versus those in recurrent infectious disease. Studying the immunology of these lymphoid organs allows a better understanding and, eventually, the finding of specific novel targets for the treatment of lymphoid hypertrophy and prevention of complications usually associated with it: cardiovascular, neurological and behavioral.
