However, clinicians' ability to differentiate GABHS

Where it is possible, the surveillance of the GABHS
resistance to macrolides, lincosamides, synergistins and ketolides should be done to update the efficacy of antimicrobial regimens for RPA.

The Infectious Diseases Society of America, the American Heart Association, and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend antibiotic treatment of acute pharyngitis only for those patients with positive GABHS cultures.
7) The Centor criteria were developed to estimate the probability of acute GABHS pharyngitis in newly presenting patients.
Conclusions: RPA, an aerobic/anaerobic polymicrobial infection, is increasing in frequency and is associated with increased recovery of GABHS
in our patients.
placebo in 39 children showed no difference in the number of GABHS
infections acquired during an 8-month period.
All had mild symptoms and signs of acute GABHS
