Rheumatic heart disease is a condition in which permanent damage to heart valves is caused by rheumatic fever. The heart valve is damaged by a process that generally begins with an infection caused by streptococcus bacteria.

According to Seattle Children’s Hospital, rheumatic fever typically occurs in children ages 5 to 15, but usually the symptoms of rheumatic heart disease Author: Colleen M. Story. Rheumatic fever (RF) is an inflammatory disease that can involve the heart, joints, skin, and brain.
The disease typically develops two to four weeks after a streptococcal throat infection. Signs and symptoms include fever, multiple painful joints, involuntary muscle movements, and occasionally a characteristic non-itchy rash known as erythema : Autoimmune disease triggered. Acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease are thought to result from an autoimmune response, but the exact pathogenesis remains unclear.
Rheumatic heart disease is the result of permanent heart valve damage secondary to acute rheumatic fever and the resultant rheumatic carditis involving pericarditis, myocarditis, or valvulitis.
Acute Rheumatic Fever and Rheumatic Heart Disease is a concise, yet comprehensive, clinical resource highlighting must-know information on rheumatic heart disease and acute rheumatic fever from a global perspective. Covering the major issues dominating the field, this practical resource presents sufficient detail for a deep and thorough.
Children who get repeated strep throat infections are at the most risk for rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease. A recent history of strep infection or rheumatic fever is key to the diagnosis of rheumatic heart disease.
Symptoms of rheumatic fever vary and typically begin 1 to 6 weeks after a bout of strep throat. Cardiac manifestation of systemic rheumatological conditions, such as RHEUMATIC FEVER.

• In patients who develop rheumatic heart disease, therapy is directed toward eliminating the group A streptococcal pharyngitis (if still present), suppressing inflammation from the autoimmune response.
Vocational counseling for children with heart disease or a history of rheumatic fever; a pilot study. By Vocational Advisory Service. and Edna M. Lawrence Abstract. Rheumatic heart disease is more prominent in children and young adults. It is a disease caused by other ailments that then affect the heart.
This lesson will discuss the pathophysiology, diagnosis. Acute rheumatic carditis first becomes manifest by the appearance of heart murmurs of either mitral or aortic regurgitation.
Patients whose rheumatic fever is manifest only by carditis are frequently not diagnosed and in later life may be discovered to have rheumatic heart disease without a definite history of rheumatic fever. Rheumatic heart disease, often neglected by media and policy makers, is a major burden in developing countries where it causes most of the cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in young people, leading to about deaths per year worldwide.
The disease results from an abnormal autoimmune response to a group A streptococcal infection in a genetically susceptible host. As front line health care providers for children, pediatricians are entrusted with the responsibility for discovering early signs of heart diseases in this complex patient population.
Especially in the newborn period, the presentation of pediatric heart disease is frequently obscure, and the consequences of these illnesses can be devastating if not caught early and managed After an attack of rheumatic fever a child may be left with some scarring of the heart, which is known as rheumatic heart disease.
For a long time it was said that rheumatic fever was a serious disease because it caused rheumatic heart disease.
People believed that children with rheumatic heart disease might even "drop dead." This is not true. Abstract. In developing countries, rheumatic fever (RF) is the predominant cause of acquired childhood cardiomyopathy.1,2 The prevalence of RHD is estimated to be higher in developing than in developed countries, ranging from 24/1 to /1respectively Rheumatic heart disease might occur following a single episode of acute rheumatic fever (ARF); however, it is most.
Rheumatic fever (RF) is a systemic illness that may occur following group A beta hemolytic streptococcal (GABHS) pharyngitis in children. Rheumatic fever and its most serious complication, rheumatic heart disease (RHD), are believed to result from an autoimmune response; however, the exact pathogenesis remains unclear.
