Unilateral tonsillar masses are common in children and are usually due to simple infection. However, underlying malignancy cannot be roled out specially when there are associated risk factors. We report a 10 years old boy with a large pedunculated tonsillar mass that turned out to be a benign hyperplasia. The literature will be reviewed.
