Immediate care in Quinsy

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%.
