Peritonsillar abscess (PTA) is a common complication of tonsillitis, yet there is limited consensus regarding its management and epidemiology. Current issues include pre-hospital care provided by general practitioners (GP) in the community (ii) the lack of standardized protocols for in-patient management and (iii) the role of routine microbiology studies in patients with PTA. We performed a retrospective review of confirmed cases of PTA presenting to a west of Ireland tertiary referral center to evaluate the peri-hospital management and role of microbiology studies in such cases.
