6.2 Pharyngitis

Inflammation of the Pharynx. Pharyngitis.

This is an inflammation of the upper and back part of the throat, or all that part which can be seen when the mouth is stretched open. It causes a redness of the mucous membrane lining the part, which is deep in proportion to the intensity of the inflammation. This complaint is generally connected with the one I am about to describe; and since the treatment is the same the reader is referred to what next follows.
