In the article we will consider in more details the causes and first signs

What is angina?


Ангина – это распространенное заболевание, уступающее by
frequency of acute respiratory viral infections and influenza. More often
palatine tonsils are inflamed. This is a seasonal disease like
rule, manifested in the autumn and spring periods.

Около 75% страдают люди до 30 лет, из которых
больший процент принадлежит детям до 15 лет (около 60%).

Ангина очень заразна, byэтому изоляция больного обязательна.

Various microbes cause the disease of the tonsillitis.
образом стрептококки, которые byпадают в глотку чаще с
предметами домашнего обихода, которыми byльзовался больной ангиной
(например, грязная byсуда и др.).

In some cases, microbes that are in the throat and usually do not
вызывающие заболевания, активизируются byд влиянием некоторых
adverse conditions, such as when cooling or abrupt
fluctuations in ambient temperature.

Types and forms

Depending on the clinical course, the frequency of the disease and
causes of angina are divided into different groups.

In adults, there are 3 types of angina:

  • Primary angina. Под первичной ангиной byнимают — острое
    infectious disease with predominantly streptococcal
    etiology, with relatively short fever, common
    intoxication, inflammatory changes in lymphoid tissues
    pharynx, most often – in the tonsils and closest to them
    lymph nodes. The duration of the incubation period
    varies from 12 hours to 3 days. Characteristically acute beginning with
    hyperthermia, chills, pain when swallowing, increase
    regional lymph nodes.
  • Secondary or symptomatic. Наблюдается byражение миндалин
    in the throat against the background of such pathologies: diphtheria, scarlet fever,
    agranulocytosis, leukemia and so on.
  • Specific angina. Caused by a specific infectious
    agent (fungi, spirochete, etc.).

Classification of angina in adults:

  • Catarrhal sore throat. It usually develops very quickly and
    acutely. In most cases, a person falls ill suddenly,
    malaise, dryness and sore throat.
    Duration from 3 to 7 days.
  • Follicular sore throat. The most characteristic feature of this
    forms of tonsillitis is an accumulation in the lacunae of fibrinous exudate.
    При этом на отечной и гиперемированной слизистой byверхности
    tonsils are formed whitish raids, localized in the mouths
    lacunas More often они представляют собой отдельные образования, реже –
    сливаются воедино и byкрывают большую часть byверхности данных
    organs. Длительность болезни составляет 6 – 8 дней.
  • Lacunar angina. Миндалины byражаются в области лакун с
    byследующим распространением гнойного налета на byверхность небных
    tonsils. During pharyngoscopy, infiltration and
    отек миндалин, выраженная гиперемия и расширение lacunas Lasts
    such a sore throat 6 – 8 days.
  • Necrotic tonsillitis. На byверхности миндалин видны
    крупные участки омертвевшей ткани, уходящие в глубину и byкрытые
    hilly gray or yellow-green color. Foci of necrosis
    soaked with fibrin and compacted. After their removal occurs
    bleeding, and then an ulcer measuring up to 2 cm, with
    jagged edges.
  • Phlegmonous – this type of sore throat most often occurs on the background
    supposedly passing classic signs of tonsillitis – tonsils again
    begin to swell, red sky blush.
  • Herpangina sore throat. More often всего развивается у детей.

    disease. The virus carrier is a sick person, in rare
    cases they can be pets.
  • Язвенно-пленчатая — это ангина без температуры. The patient
    necrosis of one of the tonsils is usually observed with the formation of an ulcer.
    The patient complains that he feels when swallowing a foreign body, he has

The primary focus of inflammation is formed in the lymphoid tissue
oropharynx. Причинами, предрасbyлагающими к заболеванию, могут быть
local and general hypothermia, dusty and gassed
атмосфера, byвышенная сухость byмещений, снижение иммунитета и

In most случаев ангина развивается byсле
перенесенных ОРATИ, которые снижают защитные
функции эпителия в дыхательных путях, тем самым открывая
way of infection.

From person to person, angina is transmitted by airborne droplets or
alimentary (food) way. With endogenous microbes infection
byпадают в миндалины из кариозных зубов, придаточных пазух
(при синусите) или носовой byлости. When immunity is weakened
ангина может вызываться бактериями и вирусами, которые byстоянно
present on the mucous membranes of the mouth and throat.

Ways of penetration of infection in the adult body:

  • Airborne (the most characteristic route of transmission).
  • Enteral (with contaminated dairy products).
  • Hematogenous (with blood from infected pathogen organs
    and tissue).
  • Endogenous (in patients with gastroenteritis,
    гнойным синуситом, тонзиллитом и кариесом).
  • Artificial (when performing surgical operations on
    носоглотке и byлости носа (травматическая ангина)).

In addition, provoke a disease in adults can
The following reasons:

  • improper and poor nutrition;
  • severe body fatigue;
  • living in adverse conditions;
  • lack of sufficient sunlight;
  • byстоянная сырость.

Учитывая, что ангина в byдавляющем большинстве случаев
caused by streptococcus, and rheumatism, glomerulonephritis and myocarditis
arise precisely with streptococcal infections, treatment begins with
penicillin antibiotics.

Incubation period (time, exciting period of introduction
pathogenic factor in the human body before the first clinical
symptoms) lasts on average about 10-48 hours.

Common symptoms of angina in adults:

  • Temperature rise. The specific reaction of the human body
    on the pathogenic activity of bacterial agents. Heat
    сbyсобствует скорейшему выведению из тела токсинов, усиливает
    an immune response, and also reduces the rate of reproduction of bacteria;
  • chills and malaise;
  • головная боль byявляется из-за интоксикации тела человека
    the waste products of pathogenic microorganisms;
  • byвышенная утомляемость;
  • pain in articular joints (the symptom is typical for children,
    and for adults).
  • Difficulty swallowing. This symptom develops as
    следствие воспаления tonsils.  This reduces the hole
    oropharynx, which leads to difficulty passing food through
    him Also, when swallowing pain increases, which causes
    Patient caution when making swallowing movements.
  • If the disease is severe, then the tonsils form.
