Abstract

The problems and potential of currently available methods for primary and secondary prevention of rheumatic fever have been discussed. The cardiologist cannot escape his role in, and responsibility for, the prevention of rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease. Faced with a patient in the prime of life who is crippled by severe and progressive rheumatic heart disease, the physician may contemplate changing diuretics and replacing valves.
