A case report on epstein-barr virus-associated acute tonsillitis complicated by airway obstruction and hepatosplenic involvement


Author(s): Dr. Mayyar Soheil Alkawadri

Abstract: This case report presents the clinical course and management of a 14-year-old patient, Theo, who initially presented with symptoms of acute tonsillitis, later complicated by airway obstruction and hepatosplenic involvement. This case highlights the diagnostic challenges in differentiating Epstein - Barr virus (EBV) infection from Streptococcal pharyngitis, the role of corticosteroids in managing impending airway obstruction, and the significance of pus on the tonsils in diagnosing bacterial infection. It also discusses the rare but serious complications associated with EBV infection.
