We encountered an infant with a peritonsillar abscess due to pharyngeal injury by a chopstick. Careful follow-up of such injuries is necessary in infants with upper respiratory tract infection because pharyngeal injuries can cause peritonsillar abscess, as in our patient. Only conservative treatment was performed for this patient. Computed tomography was useful for the diagnosis in this case.
