Rheumatic heart disease (RHD)

It is damage to one or more heart valves that

remains after an episode of acute rheumatic

fever (ARF) is resolved. It is caused by an

episode or recurrent episodes of ARF, where

the heart has become inflamed.


It is a condition in which permanent damage to

heart valves is caused by rheumatic fever. The

heart valves are damaged by a disease process

that generally begins with a strep throat caused

bacteria called streptococcus and may

eventually causes rheumatic fever.
