The lymphatic tissue located in the roof of the mouth which is also associated to throat are called adenoids. Adenoids release antibodies which act like a defence to fight infections in children and gradually disappear in adults. The tissue becomes enlarged in some kids as the adenoids trap germs and get infected causing recurrent infections, which needs to be removed. The surgical procedure to remove adenoids is called adenoidectomy which is mostly done in the children.

  • Blood tests
  • Head and neck X-rays to determine the extent of enlargement of adenoids and severity of infection


Complications of Adenoiditis

Recurrent infections of the middle ear cause blocking of Eustachian tubes which allow the fluid to drain from the ears leading to loss of hearing. The sinus cavities also get infected causing difficulty in breathing. Recurrent adenoiditis also cause chest infection like bronchitis if adenoids are severely infected with a virus or bacteria which may spread to the lungs and also cause bronchitis.
