MERINO, Luis Antonio  and  MIRANDA, Olga. Colonización faucial por Streptococcus pyogenes en pacientes con impétigo. Rev Cubana Med Trop [online]. 1999, vol.51, n.3, pp.149-151. ISSN 0375-0760.

The faucial carrying of Streptococcus pyogenes in patients presenting impetigo was determined as a risk factor for non-suppurative complications (acute glomerulonephritis). The fauces cultures of these patients revealed a S. pyogenes colonization of 65 % and all the isolates were penicilline-sensitive. It was concluded that the high percent of faucial colonization made a systemic antimicrobial treatment necessary.

Keywords : IMPETIGO [microbiology]; STREPTOCOCCUS PYOGENES [isolation & purification].
