ADENOIDS (SURGICAL SPECIMEN)

Description : When obstruction of the nasopharynx causes total nasal obstruction, snoring, recurrent otitis media, secondary dental problems, or sleep apnea, then adenoidectomy is indicated. Surgical removal of the adenoids is a relatively safe and painless procedure. This huge adenoid tonsil was removed from the nasopharynx of a six year old child.
