ABSTRACT
ASO reaction is one of the most commonly used laboratory tests especially due to the fact that Group A Streptococcal infection is a very often seen situation. Epidemiological studies have shown that ASO titers widely vary among different age groups and population groups; wide variations related to the moment of determination have been also reported.
