Tonsillitis, a viral, bacterial, or immunological inflammation of the pharyngeal tonsils at the back of the throat, is especially common in children and may require surgery. Symptoms can range from fever, sore throat, or sleep apnea to bad breath, drooling, difficulty swallowing, or other problems, depending on the type of tonsillitis.
