Tundikeri is one of the common prevalent diseases in paediatric age group. It is defined as a swelling at the base of Hanusandhi (tempero-mandibular joint) resembling one Vanakarpasa phala (cotton fruit). Tundikeri can be correlated with tonsillitis as both the terminologies have similar features like Pain and Burning sensation in throat (Ruk, Daha), suppurative inflammation (Prapaka), Enlarged tonsils (Shopha) etc. We are discussing here a case report of a 7 year old male child having history of Tundikeri (tonsillitis) for last 1 year. He came to us with complaint of Kasa (Cough), Jwara (Fever), Kanthavedana (Pain in throat) Kanthadaha (Burning sensation in throat) Aruchi (Loss of appetite) since last 3 days. Generally he got relief from modern medicines, but this time symptoms reoccur after one month. He was treated with Ayurvedic medicines which gave effective results from the third day of treatment.
