An unusual cause of recurrent tonsillitis

Abstract

Primary tuberculosis of the oral cavity and oropharynx is quite uncommon, and primary isolated tuberculosis of the tonsils is extremely rare. We report a case of primary tonsillar tuberculosis, in an otherwise healthy man, mimicking chronic non-specific tonsillitis.
