Adenoid hypertrophy


Adenoid hypertrophy is the unusual growth of the adenoid tonsil first described by the Danish physician Wilhelm Meyer in Copenhagen in 1868. He described that a long term adenoid hypertrophy will cause an obstruction of the nasal airways. These will lead to a dentofacial growth anomaly that was defined as "adenoid facies".
