Recurrent strep throat can cause enlarged tonsils. Enlarged tonsils can occur as a result of a response to a strep throat that is currently occurring, or it can also occur chronic tonsillitis. Chronic inflammation of the tonsils causes enlarged tonsils accompanied by whitish plaques on the tonsils.
