Chronic tonsillitis (CT) in persons of elderly and senile age is characterized by a diverse clinical course and is characterized by a predominance of manifestations of common symptoms of the disease. The prevalence of complaints of the presence of a foreign body, tickling, tingling or burning sensation, dry throat, cough, rapid fatigability, weakness, lethargy, pain in joints and muscles, pain in the heart area has been established. Compared with young people, in all forms of CT, cases of angina in persons of elderly and senile age happened less seldom although a certain pattern persisted, i.e., with the deterioration in the course of CT cases of recurrence of anginas increased.
