Answer

Be vigilant for signs of impending complications from tonsillitis (eg, mental status changes, severe trismus, high fevers). When necessary, perform further tests or other diagnostic evaluations (eg, CBC counts, CT scanning) in patients with signs of impending complications from tonsillitis.
