European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, 06/14/2012
Zelenik K et al. – The presence of various micro– and nano–sized metallic particles in human tonsils was confirmed. These particles may potentially cause an inflammatory response as well as neoplastic changes in human palatine tonsils similar to those occurring in the lungs.
