Should you treat carriers of pharyngeal group A strep?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The jury is out as to whether you should treat asymptomatic carriers of group A streptococci (GAS), because no studies specifically address the issue. In addition, many patients are unlikely to care about their carrier status, although they probably care about symptoms and treatment side effects. Nonetheless, you may want to consider treating GAS carriers under the certain circumstances (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, expert opinion).
