Rheumatism (Sokolsky-Bouillaud's disease) - systemic inflammatory disease of
connective tissue with a primary lesion of the cardiovascular system which develops
in predisposed him at a young age (7-15 years) after infection by the ji-haemolytic
streptococcus group A. In the English literature rheumatism often referred to as acute
rheumatic fever.

The incidence of rheumatism in the average is 5 per 100 OOO population, but in
developing countries, according to WHO, it is significantly higher (2.2 per 1000
children). In Russia the incidence of rheumatic fever in the average 0.3 per 1000 child
population. Primary morbidity of children in Moscow is quite low (0.03 in 1000).


Acute rheumatic fever develops within 2-4 weeks after previous infection caused by
the p-haemolytic streptococcus group A. We have identified a number of
streptococcus Ar and toxins, in particular the M-cell wall proteins (virulence factors),
streptolysin S and O, streptokinase and gialuro-nidazu. Confirmation of exposure to
the streptococcus organism of rheumatic patients is the detection in most patients
protivostreptokokkovyh AT - antistreptolizina-O antistreptogialuronidazy,
antistreptokinazy, antidezoksiribonukleazy in capable of damaging various tissues and
cells of the body.

In the occurrence of rheumatism important role played by genetic predisposition of
the patient. Rheumatism ill only 0,3-1% of children who have had a streptococcal
infection. At the "family" nature of rheumatism in the early XX century Russia
entered a well-known pediatrician, AA Kissel. The value of the role of genetic factors
in the development of rheumatic fever is confirmed by more frequent its development
in siblings and a higher incidence among monozygotic than among heterozygous
twins. Ar D-8, D-17 B-lymphocytes detected in 98% of patients with carditis and
arthritis, and 75% of patients with rheumatoid trochee genesis.


The development of rheumatic fever is determined by several mechanisms. A role can
play a direct toxic damage of components of myocardium cardiotropic enzymes (i-
haemolytic streptococcus group A. However, a leading value add features of cellular
and humoral immune responses to various Ag streptococcus, leading to the synthesis
of protivostreptokokkovyh AT, cross-reacts with Ag infarction (the phenomenon of
molecular mimicry) as well as its cytoplasmic Ag-corona tissue localized in the
subthalamic area and the basal ganglia of the brain. In addition, M protein has the

In the pathological process involved also microvasculature vessels. plasma and mast cells. as well as from lymphoid. . fibrinoidnye changes. in the early stages of the disease to distinguish myocarditis and endocarditis clinically is often very difficult. abdominal syndrome (rheumatic peritonitis) is now practically not observed. Classically divided into four stages of pathological process in rheumatic disease: Muko-idnoe swelling. in 40-60% of of "superantigens". Parents have noticed that after 2-3 weeks recovering from a sore throat in a child persist lethargy. endocardium and pericardium. serous membranes. The defeat of the heart (rheumatic heart disease) is a leader in the clinical picture of disease and determine its course and prognosis. pain and swelling mainly of large. Proliferative stage is characterized by the formation of rheumatic granuloma composed of large basophilic cells gistiotsitarnogo origin of giant polynuclear cells. volatility and the rapid regression of the process. The most widely considered to be the defeat of the myocardium .myocardium. rheumatic heart disease patients do not complain. It is characterized by acute onset on the background of a low rise in body temperature. Clinical picture Rheumatic fever usually occurs in children of school age and much less frequently in preschool children. However. In 70-85% of cases the disease occurs primary rheumatic heart disease.the defeat of cells of the subcortical nuclei. Changes in the skin and subcutaneous tissue are also due to vasculitis and focal inflammatory infiltration. fatigue. the most important of which are polyarthritis. Lesions of the internal organs in the form of rheumatic pneumonia. Rheumatoid arthritis can be attributed to the group of reactive arthritis that have arisen as a result of infection. nephritis. In Rheumatic heart disease can attack all the shell of the heart . it requires a comprehensive clinical and instrumental examination. Pathomorphology For rheumatism is characterized by preferential damage of connective tissue. carditis and the defeat of the subcortical nuclei of the brain. that is able to induce activation of T-and B- lymphocytes. sometimes medium- sized joints. Typical rheumatic granulomas reveal only in the heart (now quite rare).diffuse myocarditis. without prior processing of Ar . The disease is characterized by polymorphism of symptoms. Rheumatoid polyarthritis. In the stage mucoid swelling may reverse the development process. according to different authors. while chorea . proliferative reaction and sclerosis. The basis of the defeat of the nervous system is you-rheumatic Kulit.presenting cells and interaction with molecules of class II major histocompatibility complex.

This form of rheumatic disease occurs in 7-10% of cases. Calling the knee-jerk reaction. Hyperkinesis increase with excitement. it usually manifests intensification of pre-existing or new noise. irritability.aortic valve insufficiency. slowing atriovent-rikulyarnoy conductivity (sometimes up to atrioventricular dissociation). The main symptoms caused by lesion of the subcortical nuclei of the brain. Any damage to the aortic valve at echocardiography identify melkoamplitudnoe diastolic flutter of his wings. violent movements of individual muscle groups) lead to inaudibility speech. which is of great prognostic value. X-rays visible aortic configuration of the heart with a predominant increase in the left ventricle. When radiography in children with a lesion of the mitral valve detected "mitral" configuration of the heart. less often bradycardia.Characteristic emotional disorders (tearfulness. mitral-aortic defect.
