Present serious concerns Dear Dr. Lamb like to know if tonsil infections can cause damage to the heart or cause other problems. I had large tonsils as a child. In my teen years 1 had frequent ton- silitis attacks. At 18, after an extra severe attack, t had them taken out. My doctor says I have a murmur. He said I may have had rheumatic fever as a child. I never had rheumatic symptoms except for the high fever due to the tonsils. Dear Reader Sore throats and infected tonsils caused by streptococci bacteria can in- deed cause rheumatic heart di- sease with a heart murmur. Other throat infections like the common vuiis ones do not. Simply stated, the body tarns immune substances to counter- act the streptococcal infection and in some people an allergtc- like response occurs in certain tissues, including the joints (that may become painful and swollen) and the heart. The re- action continues long after the streptococcal infection is gone. Years later a valve inside the heart may still be undergoing changes usually scarring and deforming the valve. A damaged valve may not be able to open completely or it may not be able to close com- pletely. The inefficient v a 1 v e causes the abnormal sound of murmur. The characteristics of the murmur where it is heard, if it is loud or soft and when it is best heard during the heart's beat all help the doctor to determine which heart valve is damaged and how se- vere the damage is. A lot of people have mur- mure and evidence of rheumat ic heart disease who do not re call having had rheumati fever. In these people we as sume the attack o[ rheumati fever was so mild or lacking in its usual features to go undiag nosed. The danger of rheumati' heart disease is the reason why a "strep throat" should always be seen by a doctor and treated If it were'possible to treat every "strep throat" properly, rheu matic heart disease would cease to be a problem. Treating "strep throats' means proper antibiotic treat ment not removing the ton sils. The tonsils should be re moved only if the tonsils and adenoids are causing obstruc tion which will lead to de- formed facial features or re- peated ear infections, or if they persistently con tain infectec material.or are abscessed. The tonsil is a simple lymph gland like those under the jaw and in the armpits. Lympt glands manufacture white blooc cells and substances to defend the body against infection. Nat- urally, those in the throat (ton- sils) enlarge when the throat is infected. An old diseased tonsil full of puslike material is no longer useful in the fight against infection. Some patients do show im- provement in their health after the tonsils are removed. This is usually a person with an old chronic infection. In other people removal of the tonsils does little more than run up a bill for suergery and hospitali- zation. a good humor. Co-operation is available, including some you haven't asked for.
