Quinsy is an episode of acute tonsillitis which is untreated or inadequately treated and progresses to abscess formation. The highest incidence of such cases occurs in patients aged between 20- 3o years. It is necessary to differentiate quinsy from Peritonsillar cellulitis. Peritonsillar cellulitis requires just antibiotics and no further treatment. The rate of recurrence of quinsy is 10- 15%.
