Pharyngomycosis - lesion of the mucous membrane of the pharynx by fungus leptotriksom. On the surface of the mucous membrane of the posterior pharyngeal wall, lateral ridges, dense whitish formations appear in the lacunae of the palatine tonsils in the form of spines densely sitting on the base. They arise due to increased proliferation of the epithelium with cornification. These spines are clearly visible in pharyngoscopy. Pharyngicemia is associated with long-term irrational use of antibiotics, chronic tonsillitis, hypoavitaminosis.

The course is chronic, not disturbing the patient; The disease is often detected by chance while examining the pharynx. Only sometimes the patient indicates an unpleasant sensation of something in the throat of an outsider. At laboratory research in dense thorns mushrooms leptotriksa are found.

Treatment. Lubrication of the mucous membrane and tonsils with Lugol solution with glycerin. Rinse throat and rinse lacuna with a 0.1% aqueous solution of quinazole (2 times a week, 8-10 times in total). With concomitant chronic tonsillitis, removal of the tonsils is indicated.
