Rheumatic Heart Disease is a multi-system inflammatory disease involving the heart, skin, joints and brain. It occurs 6/52 after ? strep infection. Chronic infection includes valve scarring and damage, which can predispose to clinical sequelae.

Question 6 of 8

Medal-premium 1

Select from the dropdown lists to complete the text.

Rheumatic heart disease involves a ( type 2 hypersensitivity, type 1 hypersensitivity, type 4 hypersensitivty ) reaction. The target antigen is the cell wall antigen of the ( group A strep, group B strep, group C strep ). This leads to ( sterile, infective ) vegetations and activation of macrophages and cytokines which can cause damage to the heart valves.
