Recurrent group C streptococcal tonsillitis in an adolescent male requiring tonsillectomy.

Abstract

A 15-year-old boy had reported episodes of tonsillitis with group C streptococci over a four-month period. The tonsillitis cleared with antibiotic therapy but was followed by a recurrence within a few days. Tonsillectomy resulted in a permanent cure and group C streptococcus was found in the tonsils. A literature search has failed to reveal similar cases and a brief review of the existing literature is given.
