Autohemotherapy on Rheumatic Fever


Abstract
Rheumatic fever is a febrile disease whoch occurs as a delayed sequel of infections with group A
hemolytic streptococci. Although the importance of streptococcal infections in rheumatic fever appears
to be established, the mechanism by which the streptococci initiate the disease process remains obscure.
However there is much to suggest that some form of hypersensitivity is concerned in the pathoge
nesis of rheumatic fever.
There is no specific treatment in rheumatic fever. Penicillin and steroid preparations are used with
some form of general supportive measures, but recurrences after treatment of the initial attack are
not uncommon.
In this paper we treated six patients (M. 1 & F. 5) with migratory joint pain (Av. duration of
Sx : 2.4M) with autohemotherapy, from 1965 to 1971, Four out of six patients could walk without
feeling of joint pain after 1 week´s autohemotherapy, and in the remainder, the joint pain subsided
dramatically with 2 week´s autohemotherapy. There was no recurrence in follow up study. With the
above result, we want to recommend the autohemotherapy for all patients with rheumatic fever.
