A video showed doctors draining a tonsil abscess as puss pours from the incisions made during surgery. 

Rahmat Omar, a 49-year-old surgeon from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, performed the procedure on the patient with the huge abscess in her throat 

Rahmat said: “The video shows the incision and drainage of right tonsil abscess.

“Initial oral antibiotic therapy has failed and he became febrile and unwell.  

“Incision and drainage with biopsy of the protruding right tonsil was performed and the patient was placed on an Intravenouis antibiotic with pain relief medications. 

“The lesion recovered fully after one week. “
