Lacunar angina is a form of acute tonsillitis, which is characterized by purulent inflammation in the lacunae, that is, the folds of the tonsils. This form of the disease is more severe than follicular tonsillitis. In its pure form, it is rare. Most often it develops on the background of follicular. The main risk group for the incidence of this type of sore throat are children aged 5 to 12 years.
Staphylococcus in the throat is the presence in the mucous membrane of the pharynx or larynx bacteria that can cause an infectious-inflammatory process. A microbe can exist there as a conditionally pathogenic microflora, that is, without causing a disease, but can cause an inflammatory reaction. Staphylococcus aureus is considered the most dangerous, as it is more often than other species (epidermal and saprophytic) causes the disease and is the most aggressive.
Angina pectoris is a common heart disease that, when progressed, leads to chronic heart failure and myocardial infarction. Angina pectoris is often seen as a symptom of coronary artery lesions - a sudden pressing pain behind the sternum that occurs on the background of physical exertion or a stressful situation.
Intracranial pressure (ICP) is the pressure inside the skull: in the sinuses of the meninges, in the subarchal and epidural spaces, in the ventricles of the brain. Its fluctuations are associated with impaired circulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in certain parts of the skull, which leads to its accumulation or lack.
