@oindrila Rheumatic fever is an autoimmune disease that inflames the body’s tissues, such as the joints and heart. Healthcare providers may also call it acute rheumatic fever. It happens when the body’s immune system overreacts to a strep throat or scarlet fever infection that hasn’t been fully treated. Rheumatic fever causes your body’s immune system to attack its own tissues, causing inflammation (swelling). Rheumatic fever may affect the joints, heart or blood vessels.
