Diagnosis

The gold standard for the diagnostics of streptococcal tonsillopharyngitis is the rapid streptococcal test. The material is taken from the yard. Diagnosis time is 15-30 minutes. If necessary, additional studies are conducted to assess the severity of the infectious process and the general condition.
