Examples of "tonsils"
Tonsils in humans include, from superior to inferior: nasopharyngeal tonsils (also known as adenoids), palatine tonsils, and lingual tonsils.
The tubal tonsil is one of the four main tonsil groups comprising Waldeyer's tonsillar ring, which also includes the palatine tonsils, the lingual tonsils, and the pharyngeal tonsils.
Palatine tonsils, commonly called the tonsils and occasionally called the faucial tonsils, are tonsils located on the left and right sides at the back of the throat, which can often be seen as flesh-colored, pinkish lumps. Tonsils only present as "white lumps" if they are inflamed or infected with symptoms of exudates (pus drainage) and severe swelling.
The adenoid, unlike the palatine tonsils, has pseudostratified epithelium. The adenoid is often removed along with the palatine tonsils.
It is characterized by the presence of whitish-yellow dots on the pharyngeal wall, tonsils or lingual tonsils.
Tonsils are collections of lymphoid tissue facing into the aerodigestive tract. The set of lymphatic tissue known as Waldeyer's tonsillar ring includes the adenoid tonsil, two tubal tonsils, two palatine tonsils, and the lingual tonsil.
It gives off tonsillary branches to the palatine tonsils.
One common type of anatomical crypt is the Crypts of Lieberkühn. However, it is not the only type: some types of tonsils also have crypts. Because these crypts allow external access to the deep portions of the tonsils, these tonsils are more vulnerable to infection.
Like other lymphatic tissues, the function of lingual tonsils is to prevent infections. These tonsils contain B and T lymphocytes which get activated when harmful bacteria and viruses come in contact with tonsils. B lymphocytes kill pathogens by producing antibodies against them, while T lymphocytes directly kill them by engulfing them.
Palatine tonsils consist of approximately 15 crypts, which result in a large internal surface. The tonsils contain four lymphoid compartments that influence immune functions, namely the reticular crypt epithelium, the extrafollicular area, the mantle zones of lymphoid follicles, and the follicular germinal centers. In human palatine tonsils, the very first part exposed to the outside environment is tonsillar epithelium.
Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils, typically of rapid onset. It is a type of pharyngitis. Symptoms may include sore throat, fever, enlargement of the tonsils, trouble swallowing, and large lymph nodes around the neck. Complications include peritonsillar abscess.
Adenoids develop from a subepithelial infiltration of lymphocytes after the 16th week of embryonic life. They are part of the so-called Waldeyer ring of lymphoid tissue which includes the palatine tonsils and the lingual tonsils.
Some animals, but not humans, have one or two additional tonsils:
Abnormal findings include bright-red, enlarged tonsils or white or yellow tonsillar exudate.
The tonsils also are lymphatic tissue and help mediate the ingestion of pathogens.
Enlarged or hypertrophic lingual tonsils have the potential to cause or exacerbate sleep apnea.
Shortly after the album was mixed, lead singer Nick Hexum had his tonsils removed.
is an infection at the top of the throat, adjacent to the tonsils.
Lingual tonsils are located on posterior aspect of tongue which is supplied through:
Squamous cell carcinoma of lingual tonsils can occur in people above 50 years of age.
