Abstract

Abstract A review of the literature on peritonsillar abscess and peritonsillitis does not impress one with the adequacy of present day therapy. Not until one has been confronted with several patients in quick succession for whom the results of incision and drainage are unsatisfactory, as I have been, does one realize how unsatisfactory the accepted form of therapy is. Only when incision and drainage result in the successful evacuation of an abscess, with the great relief that occurs shortly thereafter, is one justified in inflicting the pain and discomfort resulting therefrom on the patient. Much has been written on the improvement and modification of the surgical approach to this problem, but the new methods have not been universally accepted. Despite the introduction of the sulfonamide compounds in 1937, little mention has been made of their use in the treatment of peritonsillar abscess and peritonsillitis, certainly not enough from which to draw References 1.
