The present study is an observational case series study of 50 cases of patients in the age group of 5–15 years for a period of 2 years. The age range was chosen, where issue of tonsillar and adenoid hypertrophy is very common. The objective of this case series is to establish that adenoidectomy is not a requirement while performing adenotonsillectomy unless and until the patient suffers from genuine adenoid hypertrophy symptoms.
