Streptococcus pyogenes are non-motile gram-positive cocci, which can colonize human organs and cause serious infections. Beta-haemolytic Group A Streptococci (Streptococcus pyogenes) are the main cause for infections of the upper respiratory tracts, especially angina. An early diagnosis and treatment of Group A Streptococcal angina reduces symptoms severity and further complications, such as rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis.
