High fever accompanied with inflammation and swelling of joints, muscle pains and rash usually following a throat infection could be Rheumatic Fever. The causative organism is a bacterium called Streptococcus, which is commonly associated with Sore throat and in some cases Scarlet fever. The sensitized immune bodies in a few cases start attacking the body tissue leading to systemic inflammation; hence Rheumatic fever is considered as an auto immune disease.
As mentioned earlier the cause for Rheumatic fever is a bacterium Streptococcus but why in few cases it leads to it is: inadequate treatment of throat infection, poor oral hygiene, and compromised immune system. The risk of rheumatic fever is more among weaker section of society because of the poor environmental condition.
