  The etiology of infectious tonsillitis is usually easily discernable with microbiological investigations such as microscopic examination of gram stain of the exudate and culture in specific media. Rapid antigen tests have made diagnosis a point-of-care and rapid procedure. However, rarely unusual organisms may be the etiological agents, in which case routine investigations fail to uncover the cause. The report discusses the case of a male patient with syphilitic tonsillitis, an unusual case of throat infection.
