The Uvula and Palatine Tonsil: Structure, Function, and Clinical Implications

Wang Zang

The uvula and the palatine tonsils are anatomical structures located in the oropharynx, playing crucial roles in speech, swallowing, and the immune response. This mini review aims to provide an overview of the uvula and palatine tonsils, including their anatomy, function, and associated clinical conditions. The uvula is a fleshy projection at the posterior end of the soft palate, while the palatine tonsils are located bilaterally at the lateral walls of the oropharynx. This review delves into the developmental origins, anatomical features, immunological functions, and clinical implications of these structures, shedding light on their significance in maintaining overall health.
