In some children, palatine tonsil enlargement may be asymptomatic until adulthood, while in other cases, breathing problems and other symptoms of the disease may develop. Congenital developmental anomalies. In the process of Ivermectin formation in the intrauterine period, various disorders can be noted, which can be provoked by environmental factors (for example, polluted atmospheric air, high radiation levels), injuries or chronic diseases of the mother, abuse of alcoholic beverages or drugs (by the mother or father of the child).
This may result in a congenital enlargement of the nasopharyngeal tonsil. A genetic predisposition to adenoids is also not excluded, however, there is no specific data confirming this fact. Frequent infectious diseases. Chronic or often recurrent (stromectol) diseases of the upper respiratory tract (tonsillitis, pharyngitis, bronchitis) can lead to dysregulation of the inflammatory process in the lymphoid ring of the pharynx, which may result in an increase in the nasopharyngeal tonsil and the appearance of adenoids. A special risk in this regard is posed by acute respiratory viral diseases (ARVI), that is, colds, flu.
In this case, it becomes impossible to equalize the pressure between the tympanic cavity and the atmosphere. The air from the tympanic cavity is gradually absorbed, as a result of which the mobility of the tympanic membrane is impaired, which causes hearing loss.
Hearing impairment is associated with excessive growth of the nasopharyngeal tonsil, which in some cases can reach enormous size and literally block the internal (pharyngeal) openings of the auditory tubes.
