References The initial approach to the patient presenting with fever should include a comprehensive history, physical examination, and appropriate laboratory testing. As the underlying process develops, the history and physical assessment should be repeated. The first step should be to confirm a history of fever and document the fever pattern. Classic fever patterns such as intermittent, relapsing sustained, and temperature-pulse disparity may prove to be useful but rarely are diagnostic. In patients returning from areas where tuberculosis and malaria are common, the index of suspicion for these diseases should be elevated.

Signs and symptoms[ edit ] A culture positive case of streptococcal pharyngitis with typical tonsillar exudate in a year-old. The disease typically develops two to four weeks after a throat infection. The heart is involved in about half of the cases. Damage to the heart valves usually occurs only after multiple attacks but may occasionally occur after a single case of RF. The damaged valves may result in heart failure and also increase the risk of atrial fibrillation and infection of the valves.
Striae fingerprints go around the lesion. Mosaic warts cluster Cause[ edit ] Plantar warts are benign epithelial tumors generally caused by infection by human papillomavirus types 1, 2, 4, 60, or 63,  but have also been caused by types 57,  65,  66,  and The virus attacks compromised skin through direct contact, possibly entering through tiny cuts and abrasions in the stratum corneum outermost layer of skin.
Treatment Treatment aims to destroy the bacteria, relieve symptoms, control inflammation, and prevent recurrences of RF. Antibiotics, such as penicillin , may be given to destroy any remaining strep bacteria in the body. Further antibiotics may be prescribed, to prevent recurrence.
