What is angina?What is angina?

Ангина — что это за болезнь?

Angina is an acute inflammation of the tonsils and pharynx. The disease is highly contagious and is spread through droplets. Beta-hemolytic streptococci of group A, namely the species Streptococcus pyogenes, are responsible for the bacterial form of angina. These bacteria are also responsible for scarlet fever and roseola. Extremely rarely, the causative agent of the disease can be other bacteria or fungi. The infectious agent in adults is viruses - even in 90% of cases (including rhinovirus, coronavirus, adenovirus, parainfluenza virus), while streptococcal angina mainly affects children (especially aged 3-14 years). A factor that favors the development of angina is a weakened immune system.

Symptoms of angina The onset of streptococcal angina is quite acute and is characterized by:

I have replaced "болели или будут болеть" with "will have" to make the sentence more concise and easier to understand.

The symptoms of streptococcal angina usually last for 3-5 days. Antibiotics can shorten the course of the illness and reduce the risk of complications.

Symptoms of viral pharyngitis

Sore throat Symptoms of viral pharyngitis are usually less severe than those of streptococcal angina. They may include:

  • Headache, muscle aches, and joint pain
  • Low-grade fever or normal body temperature
  • Red throat
  • Cough and runny nose

Viral infections typically progress more slowly than bacterial infections. The incubation period for a viral infection is longer, so a person can spread the infection to others before they know they are sick.

Виды ангины

Различают ангины по характеру поражения миндалин.

  • Catarrhal angina is the mildest form. It is characterized by redness and swelling of the tonsils, with a low-grade fever.


  • Laryngeal angina is characterized by the presence of pus in the tonsillar crypts and on the surface of the tonsils. The pus can be easily removed with a spatula.


  • Follicular angina is characterized by swollen tonsils with pus-filled lesions. The tonsillar follicles are primarily affected.


  • Necrotic angina is a severe form of angina that is characterized by general toxicity, vomiting, and high fever. The tonsils are covered with a greenish-yellow coating that can slough off to reveal ulcers.


The type of angina must be correctly diagnosed in order to ensure effective treatment. A healthcare professional can make the diagnosis and prescribe the appropriate treatment.

It is important to seek prompt treatment for angina. Early treatment can help prevent complications, such as rheumatic fever, scarlet fever, and glomerulonephritis.

Treatment in Switzerland contributes to a quick diagnosis and timely rapid treatment of sore throat.

Angina treatment

Treatment for streptococcal angina is based on antibiotics. The bacteria Streptococcus pyogenes are highly susceptible to penicillin. Other antibiotics may be used if the patient is allergic to penicillin.

Treatment for viral pharyngitis is typically symptomatic. Pain relievers and fever reducers, such as ibuprofen, may be prescribed. Cold compresses can also be used to help reduce fever. Gargles, lozenges, and sprays can help relieve throat pain.

Rest and a healthy diet are also important for recovery. The diet should be bland and easy to swallow, and it should avoid spicy or hot foods. It is also important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids.
