  1. rheumatic aortitis

    Rheumatic aortitis is a pathological condition characterized by inflammation of the aorta, which is the main artery that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body, and it is caused by rheumatic fever, an inflammatory disease that can develop as a complication of untreated or poorly treated strep throat or scarlet fever. The inflammation can lead to scarring and narrowing of the aortic valve, impeding normal blood flow, or result in aortic regurgitation, where the valve does not close properly and causes blood to flow back into the heart.
