Answer

Further inpatient care may be necessary in patients with group A streptococcal infections for rehabilitative reasons (eg, in cases of chorea or neuropsychiatric manifestations of infection) or for debilitating arthritis. Consultation with a physical medicine and rehabilitation (PMR) physician, neurologist, or rheumatologist may be useful in these situations.
