This catarrhal affection frequently involves the mucous membrane which covers the soft palate, tonsils and back part of the throat(fauces).
The parts redden and swell, are at first dry and afterwards covered with a whitish tough phlegm, which especially assumes on the tonsils to a certain degree an appearance of diphtheritic.
In its acute form it is mostly attended with some fever, painful swallowing a heavily coated tongue, bad taste and an increase of saliva.
Swallowing in bad cases, where the palatine and pharyngeal muscles are involved, becomes utterly impossible, so that an attempt to swallowing causes either choking or an expulsion of the fluid through the nose. For this reason, also, the voice of the patient assumes a nasal twang in talking. Sometimes the inflammation extends higher up into the naso-pharyngeal cavity, affecting the eustachian tubes and causing hardness of hearing and stitch-pain in the ears.
It is caused either by atmospheric influence like cold weather etc and a constitutiona disposition, or is part and portion of certain acute diseases, such as scarlet fever, small-pox, measles, etc. At times it may prevail epidemically.
