Here's a video explaining rheumatic fever as well as a personal story from Suliana.
Rheumatic fever is a serious illness that affects the valves of the heart. It mainly affects children (aged 5-19 years) after a group A streptococcal (GAS) infection (which usually causes a sore throat). Hear more from Dr Nigel Wilson, Paediatric Cardiologist.
