Abstract

Numerous post-Streptococcal syndromes (PSS) have been described in the literature. The role of antibiotic therapy in the management of PSS is best established with acute rheumatic fever. We present a patient with streptococcus-associated medium vessel vasculitis with multiple flares despite immunosuppressive therapy that achieved a sustained remission with long term oral penicillin V 250 mg twice daily.
