Tonsillectomy, Rheumatic Fever & Kidney Infection Correlation?

  1. Is it because of GBS and that's the reason why people who have tonsillectomies are more apt to getting Rheumatic fever, kidney infection?

    Am I missing concepts in my critical thinking? Please correct me if i am.

    I figured since these disease processes can be caused by an infection i.e.: a uti that goes all the way up to the kidneys in the form of an infection.

    Rheumatic fever because of GBS

    Maybe lymph node/systemic issue?
