Sore Throat — Pictures

1. True Exudate vs. Gunk in Tonsillar Crypts

In the picture on our left, we see what exudate looks like, on both tonsils.ย  On our right, we see โ€œgunkโ€ (old food, etc.) filling holes in tonsils scarred from prior infections.

2.ย  Peritonsillar Abscesses with Deviation of Uvula

3.ย  Curled Uvula vs. Plain Pharyngitis vs. Peritonsillar Abscess

4.ย  Diphtheria (which Iโ€™ve never seen).ย  Neck may be very swollen too.
