Özet

Tonsillopharyngitis is one of the most common pediatric upper respiratory tract infection. Although grup A beta hemolytic streptoccoci is the most important pathogens due to suppurative and nonsuppurative complications, there are other bacteria and viruses that cause the same clinical picture. Penicillin is the first choice in the treatment of streptococcal tonsillopharyngitis since 1950' s. There is no resistance for penicillin in the group A beta hemolytic streptoccoci. But there is increase in the number of studies that report increased clinical failure with penicillin, so some other alternative treatment options are became listed.
