Possibly: Inasmuch as both laryngitis and tonsillitis may be caused by the same virus, the two problems can occur together. But because the tissues are not exactly adjacent to each other, the two problems may co-exist because of the same etiology. In general, however, each one, laryngitis and tonsillitis are separate problems and laryngitis frequently occurs in the absence of tonsillitis and visa- versa.
