Rare but potentially life-threatening non-iatrogenic condition. It is defined as continuous bleeding for more than one hour, or more than 250 ml of blood loss regardless of the duration of bleeding. Bacterial tonsillitis is the most common cause of spontaneous tonsillar hemorrhage, and accounts for 1.1% of cases. Hemorrhagic tonsillitis has been reported in 55 patients in the worldwide literature to date. Conservative management includes adrenaline-soaked gauze, silver nitrate and use of hydrogen peroxide gargles. If bleeding fails to cease conservatively, surgical intervention is required.
