The purpose of this monogram is to describe the whole gamut of Acute Rheumatic Fever (ARF) and Chronic Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) and give the methods of management. This book, both in its concept and design, is aimed at giving a comprehensive and complete knowledge about ARF and RHD, to the pediatricians, physicians and the medical students dealing with health problems in the socioeconomically poor community. This book helps the clinicians to approach the diagnostic problems presented by children with ARF and RHD; through proper assessment and integration of the history, physical examination, investigations, especially the modern tool, the echocardiography and learn about the prevention of the disease and its complications. The modern tool, echocardiography, plays an important role in the precise and early diagnosis, hence two chapters on, ECHO in ARF and RHD have been written. The influence of this is likely to be truly spectacular and special, as this will help in bringing many patients, into the net of penicillin prophylaxis and may assist in changing the epidemiological face of the disease. This book with a galaxy of distinguished contributors, will surely be a valuable reference resource for the years to come.
