In brief: Rheumatic heart

After diagnosis for rheumatic fever then over time can develop rheumatic heart disease.
It usually develops many years after the initial diagnosis and affects individuals in the 5th or 6th decade of life. Valvular disease is best followed by regular echos or ultrasounds of the heart.
