Q: Are there any risk factors for pediatric tonsilitis?
A: Children with any type of immune deficiency may be more prone to infections.
Q: How is pediatric tonsilitis diagnosed?

Q: What is the treatment for pediatric tonsilitis?
A: Treatment may be observation if the infection is felt to be viral. If it persists and is felt to be bacterial, then the child is typically placed on a course of an appropriate antibiotic.
