A patient who presents with a red throat and tonsils can be diagnosed with pharyngitis, which is an inflammation of the pharynx.

Pharyngitis can have various causes, including viral infections such as the common cold, influenza, and mononucleosis, as well as bacterial infections such as strep throat (caused by Streptococcus pyogenes). In addition to redness of the throat and tonsils, symptoms of pharyngitis may include sore throat, difficulty swallowing, fever, and swollen lymph nodes in the neck. A diagnosis of pharyngitis is usually made based on clinical symptoms and may be confirmed by laboratory testing, such as a rapid strep test or a throat culture.
