Streptococcal Allergy In Acute Rheumatic Infection


, : Streptococcal Allergy In Acute Rheumatic Infection. Archives of Disease in Childhood 5(25): 60-72

The author considers the literature and his own work on various streptococci isolated from tonsils, teeth, nasopharynx, feces and blood and post-mortem cultures from joints and nodules of rheumatics. Cultures from tonsils and feces of rheumatic and non-rheumatic patients are very similar, with a slightly larger % of green streptococci from feces of rheumatics. The allergic skin reactions to various streptococci and their autolytic products are considered, and 2 definitions of the condition are quoted. Some of the bacteriology and other anomalies of rheumatism are explained on an allergic basis.
