Acute tonsillopharyngitis is the most commonly seen infection of the childhood leading to hospital presentations. The agent of the disease is mostly respiratory tract viruses. The most frequent bacterial agent group is Group A streptococcus (GAS), and GAS infections in school-aged children between 5 and 15 years have been reported as 15-30% among all tonsillopharyngitis agents. GAS pharyngitis can be observed in much younger children who are in contact with school-aged children. Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Arcanobacterium haemolyticum and anaerobe bacteria may also cause tonsillopharyngitis. While A. haemolyticum is a rare agent, it is substantial since it may lead to dengue-like rashes. Following the consumption of unpasteurized cow milk, Group C streptococcus may also be an agent of pharyngitis.
