Excellent DDx for pharyngitis!
By Varvara K. on 14. August 2019 for Group A Streptococcus (GAS): Signs and Symptoms

What an excellent lecture! I have not seen a comparison of pharyngitis causes shown next to each other so clearly until now. Having the images of throat presentations displayed on the same slide as the narrative goes on was very helpful. Thank you!

I usually dislike older professors, but he explains very objectively and up to date.
