Tonsillitis refers to acute inflammation of the tonsils. The tonsils (mostly referring to the palatine tonsils) are two small lymphoid organs that lie on either side of the back of the throat that one can see when the mouth is opened. The inflammation in tonsillitis can also include the adenoids (pharyngeal tonsils) and the lingual tonsils.
