Article of the Week: GABHS Pharyngitis

The article of the week is  a recently published systematic review looking at the sensitivity/specificity of RADT in kids/adults with suspected GABHS Pharyngitis.
The data from the 59 studies (55K patients) is impressive and may be helpful in determining who should get cultured, antibiotics, or nothing at all.
I’ve also included a link the most recent AHA/AAP guidelines for the assessment and management of GABHS.
