We described the case of a six-month-old infant presenting with acute onset respiratory distress due to a fast growing (or more likely congenital origin) hamartoma arising from the palatine tonsil
. It is important to perform a thorough examination of the respiratory system, including a local examination of the oral cavity in any patient presenting with respiratory distress.
Sometimes the tonsils
can also become very large and cause a narrowing of the airways which can cause breathing difficulties, resulting in snoring and/or "raspy" breathing sounds.
