A tragic event. Monday, November 28, a 3-year-old girl died of an invasive streptococcal A infection, as reported by France Bleu. The child, originally from the south coast of the Landes, had been taken care of by the Dax hospital, then by the Bordeaux University Hospital. This very young patient had a priori no other pathology that could explain the deterioration of her condition. As Ameli Santé explains, strep throat accounts for 25 to 40% of cases in children, and only 10 to 25% in adults. Children under the age of three very rarely present with bacterial strep throat.

A rapid diagnostic test confirms the presence of bacterial angina, some symptoms are warning signs: high fever, painful neck glands, absence of cough and enlarged tonsils.

Monitor cases

“In 99% of cases, there is no difficulty with angina. However, in some cases, the disease can degenerate and can affect vital functions. This was the case”, recalls Didier Couteaud, the representative of the ARS in the Landes, quoted by France 3. Before adding: “We warn all the families of the sector and we remind them that if there are symptoms linked to angina, you must quickly consult a doctor All of the doctors in the Macs sector are also seized, and we ask them to monitor any cases that there may be.

Two other cases were reported: a member of the girl’s siblings and another child attending another school in the area.
