Adenoids and tonsils are primary lymphoid organs in children responsible for immunity through antigen presentation. In common words, these organs/tissues are present in all children from birth and are part of generation of adequate immune response through the childhood years. Though tonsils are present in oropharynx or throat and can be seen or assessed through simple throat examination, adenoids are present in the nasopharynx or deep behind the nasal cavity (nose), and are hidden from ordinary examination and visualization. These lymphoid organs commonly get hypertrophied/enlarged from 2 to 6 years of age as a response to various upper respiratory infections and allergies.
