Abstract: 

Background: Rheumatic fever, an important cause of mortality and morbidity in children, is caused by streptococcal pharyngitis and encompasses the etiology of 30% to 40% of all cardiac diseases.

Objective: To determine the prevalence of streptococcal pharyngitis in children with pharyngitis and assess and compare its signs and clinical manifestations with other types of pharyngitis.

Methods: 119 children with the age range of 5 to 15 were admitted in Qods hospital in Qazvin with pharyngitis in which 88 children without the history of Antibiotic therapy were selected. A questionnaire was completed for each and their pharynx was cultured separately.

Findings: Out of 88 pharyngeal cultures, 14 cases were found to be affected by group A beta hemolytic streptococcus strain which indicated the prevalence rate of 15.9%. No meaningful association was defected between clinical manifestation and the causative microorganism of pharyngitis.

Conclusion: The prevalence of streptococcal phrayngitis in this study is similar to universal findings. Sings and clinical manifestations of streptococcal pharyngitis cannot be trusted as a reliable criteria for differentiation with other pharyngitis.
