This study evaluated the natural history of acute tonsillopharyngitis associated with atypical bacterial infections, showing that Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Chlamydia pneumoniae organisms are frequently found in children with acute tonsillopharyngitis. The study also demonstrated, for what we believe to be the first time, that, unless adequately treated, acute tonsillopharyngitis associated with infection with M. pneumoniae and C. pneumoniae may have a negative outcome with a high risk of recurrence of respiratory illness.
