Patient : I was exposed to someone with walking pneumonia and a few days later I developed what was diagnosed as viral tonsillitis (negative culture and strep) so I'm wondering if the tonsillitis could have been caused by whatever cold virus my friend had that lead to pneumonia for them. I'm all better I'm just wondering if that was my tonsils fighting it off because I never developed any other symptoms.
