Abstract

A sore throat, due to pharyngitis or tonsillitis, is a common complaint among children, adolescents and adults. It refers to any painful sensation localised to the pharynx and surrounding anatomy, and be a symptom of disease processes not directly linked to the pharynx. This is because it could be an early symptom of another medical problem, such as a cold or flu, or something more substantial, such as tonsillitis.1-3
