Adenoiditis - inflammation of the pharyngeal tonsils (adenoids). Most often found in children of preschool and younger school age. Inflammation of the pharyngeal tonsils occurs similar to the inflammatory process in the tonsils with tonsillitis (angina). Long flowing untreated chronic adenoiditis, and tonsillitis, may lead to the emergence and worsening of the course of diseases of the kidneys (glomerulonephritis), rheumatic fever, heart diseases, diseases of the digestive tract, etc.

Causes of adenoiditis
To the development of adenoids predispose to the following factors: artificial feeding of the child, monotonous diet, predominantly carbohydrate food, the presence of rickets (vitamin D deficiency), diathesis (mainly exudative), allergies, hypothermia, environmental factors (prolonged exposure in areas with dry, polluted air). Acute adenoiditis develops in younger children due to the activation of the microbial flora of the nasopharynx under the influence of hypothermia or as a complication of an infectious disease.
Symptoms of adenoiditis
For the clinical picture of acute adenoiditis is characterized by the appearance of a Muco-purulent discharge from the nasopharynx (the release drain at the back of the throat and visible during the inspection), fever, difficulty in nasal breathing. Very often in acute adenoiditis is the involvement in the inflammatory process of the Eustachian (auditory) tube, which is manifested by pain in the ear, hearing loss on the affected side. It is characterized by severe pain in the ear, hearing impairment, purulent discharge from the ear canal.
Chronic adenoiditis is the result of acute inflammation of the adenoids. Often combined with an increase in size of the pharyngeal tonsils (adenoids). Manifestations of the disease: no fever (low-grade fever), the backlog of the child in mental and physical development, fatigue, poor school performance, impaired attention, drowsiness at the same time with poor sleep, headache, loss of appetite, night cough (due to postnasal drip at the back of the throat and purulent discharge from the inflamed tonsils). Often chronic adenoiditis accompanies chronic evstahiit, which is accompanied by progressive hearing impairment.
