Faringitis estreptocócica

La faringitis estreptocócica es la causa bacteriana más común de irritación de la garganta y, dado que esta faringitis ocasionalmente puede llevar a que se presente fiebre reumática, se administran antibióticos. La faringitis estreptocócica a menudo abarca fiebre (superior a 101 grados F - 38,3 grados C), parches de drenaje blanco en la garganta y ganglios linfáticos inflamados o sensibles en el cuello. Los niños pueden presentar dolor de cabeza y dolor de estómago.
