Abstract

This article presents the results of the cost-effectiveness analysis of using short-term treatment with azithromycin, clarithromycin, cefuroxime and amoxicillin/clavulanate compared to standard 10-day course of oral penicillin in treating children with acute streptococcal pharyngitis. It was found, that the cost-effectiveness ratio (CER) of 5-day course of clarithromycin was 50% lower than CER of standard treatment with oral penicillin.
