Abstract

Arguably, group A Streptococcus is the quintessence of an old organism that has become in some instance more virulent. In this manuscript, the epidemiology, clinical spectrum, and pathogenesis of group A Streptococcus infections are described. Current concepts in the pathogenesis of streptococcal infection are also presented with emphasis on the interaction between group A Streptococcus virulence factors and host defense mechanisms. Finally, new concepts in the treatment of streptococcal toxic-shock syndrome are discussed.
