Tonsillitis is affected when a viral or bacterial infection affects the tonsils. It mostly affects the children. The reasons for tonsillitis are same as that of pharyngitis, except that the affected area is different.

There are 2 broad categories of tonsillitis; chronic and acute tonsillitis. Continuous infection of tonsils is called chronic tonsillitis. Because of the persistent nature of the disease, pockets can form in the affected area. In this condition, tonsils enlarge to an extent that they cause an obstruction in the other areas of throat. Acute tonsillitis is caused by both viral and bacterial infections. It is characterized by an ear pain when the food is being swallowed. Malaise and weakness are also witnessed.
