Abstract:


We reviewed the clinical presentation and management of children with Invasive group A streptococcal infections admitted to our tertiary Children’s Hospital in the last eight years. Our study highlighted the varied symptomatology and management practices in children with iGAS and showed that early diagnosis and prompt initiation of appropriate antibiotics for iGAS can help in resolution of symptoms and good outcome.
