Brothers talk about rheumatic fever - it started with a sore throat
Meet Tristan and Justin. The 11-year-old twins know first-hand that a sore throat left untreated can lead to rheumatic fever. Justin avoided rheumatic fever when his strep throat was detected by swabbing and he completed a course of antibiotics - unfortunately for Tristan a case of rheumatic fever led to open heart surgery.
