Strep A – What you need to know

Group A streptococcus (GAS), also known as strep A is a
common bacteria which causes infections such as tonsillitis
and scarlet fever. These symptoms are usually mild and rarely
become serious.

Strep A can however cause a rare, and more serious infection
known as invasive Group A strep (iGAS). This happens when
GAS bacteria get into parts of the body where it is not normally
found, like the lungs or bloodstream.
