I had Rheumatic Fever at age 3-4. I was wondering if you are more susceptible to getting any Arthritis condition.

Answers from our Doctors

I am not aware of any increased risk of autoimmune disease following an episode of rheumatic fever. If there was arthritis associated with your rheumatic fever there may be a risk of osteoarthritis later in life, depending on the degree of arthritis.
