Some areas sampled were covered completely with microbial growth, whereas others had few attached microbes, as evidenced by the presence of areas of normal mucosa Figure 2 and Figure 3.

Age and sex were matched between the groups. These 2 patients underwent adenoidectomy alone. The patient’s clinical manifestations may also suggest the diagnosis of PTLD. The 2 patients without tonsillar hypertrophy were found intraoperatively to have adenoid hypertrophy.


This tissue is primarily involved in secretory immunity and regulates immunoglobulin production. However, immunosuppression also predisposes the transplant recipient to an increased risk for opportunistic infections and neoplastic disorders, particularly adenotobsillar of the lymphoreticular system.

Indications for kidney transplantation included glomerulonephritis, nephric dysplasia, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, polycystic kidney disease, and Alport syndrome.

Adenotonsillar disease.

Even in the immunocompetent patient, the role of the adenoids and tonsils is not clearly defined. Symptoms referable to adenotonsillar enlargement were recorded. Factors that disesse the risk for PTLD include young age, liver as opposed to kidney allograft, EBV seronegativity, and use of tacrolimus as an immunosuppressive agent Table 4.

Risk factors associated with the development of PTLD, such as young age and tacrolimus immunosuppression, were reviewed. He underwent adenotonsillectomy, and PTLD was diagnosed. Most or all of disase antibiotics in current use were identified on the basis of their activity against free-floating bacteria. It was then rinsed twice with 0.

Identification of adenoid biofilms in chronic rhinosinusitis. It is an important cause of morbidity and mortality after solid organ transplantation. The palatine tonsils are the largest component of the Waldeyer ring and are found in the lateral walls of the oropharynx.

Both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms were isolated from patients with both infection and obstruction; Staphylococcus species were the most frequently isolated, followed by Streptococcus species.
