6 Possible Causes for Pharyngitis due to Group A Beta-Hemolytic Streptococcus

  • Tonsillar Hypertrophy

    A 29-year-old obese man had marked tonsillar hypertrophy, somnolence, hypoxemia, and hypercapnia. Endotracheal intubation followed by tracheostomy relieved the hypoventilation. Weight loss improved the arterial blood gas levels. Sequential upright and supine flow-volume loops were compatible with a fixed upper-airway[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Penile Cellulitis

    Streptococcus pyogenes (the Lancefield group A beta hemolytic streptococcus) is known as a cause of pharyngitis, erysipelas and impetigo.[odermatol.com] Group B beta-haemolytic streptococci are known to colonise the throat and lower female genital tract; prevalence is 4% to 18% [14].[odermatol.com] However, cases of severe balanitis due to S. pyogenes aguired during fellatio performed by commercial sex workers have been reported [11-13].[odermatol.com]

  • Rheumatic Fever

    World Heart Federation Introduction ARF is a non-infective sequelae of pharyngitis caused by group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus.[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] The incidence of ARF has declined dramatically due to the introduction of antibiotics as well as a change in the M protein of the streptococci leading to alterations in rheumatogenicity[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu]

  • Rheumatic Chorea

    World Heart Federation Introduction ARF is a non-infective sequelae of pharyngitis caused by group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus.[pedclerk.uchicago.edu] The incidence of ARF has declined dramatically due to the introduction of antibiotics as well as a change in the M protein of the streptococci leading to alterations in rheumatogenicity[pedclerk.uchicago.edu]

  • PANDAS

    The acronym 'PANDAS' (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections) is used to describe neuropsychiatric symptoms putatively resulting from autoimmune responses to streptococcal infection in vulnerable children. A case of 'PANDAS' is presented to increase physician[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Recurrent Respiratory Infection

    Acute pharyngitis is commonly caused by viruses and does not need antibiotics. About 15% of the episodes may be due to Group A beta hemolytic streptococcus (GABS) 17 .[immunoloji.uludag.edu.tr]
