Children wit enlarged adenoids
are predisposed to recurrent throat infections usually caused by bacteria. The most common and feared Bacterium involved is usually Group A streptococci. This bacterium in case of recurrent infections and poor treatment predisposes the child to develop in future what is called acute rheumatic fever
. Acute rheumatic fever is disease that attacks the heart especially the valves, joints, skin and the brain.
Removal of the enlarged adenoids on time prevents the onset of this disease, and also saves money from frequent spending. The snoring
experienced by the child is usually due to these enlarged adenoids.
I suggest you abide by your specialists recommendations for this would go a long way to preventing the children from suffering from long term complications of rheumatic heart disease
especially of the heart, skin and brain.
Thanks and hope this helps,
