I ran across a scientific article from Senegal that can be accessed in full without a subscription to the journal:
These ENTs are reporting on 15 cases of ES, in general recommending external surgical approach over internal. They are talking about hospitalizations post-surgery, which I doubt most of us have had, but there is other interesting information here that compares pain level, rate of recovery, and other factors. I also liked the documentation that only 10 of 15 patients had pain on palpation of the tonsil area during exam and that they believe ES is under diagnosed.
I am sharing because I thought some people might want to print for their doctors or perhaps some who live in regions of the world near these investigators would be interested in where to find care.
