[R.M. Centor, contemporary U.S. physician] A clinical prediction rule used in the diagnosis of streptococcal pharyngitis (strep throat). It includes four elements: fever above 100.5°F (41°C); no cough; exudates on the tonsils; and tenderness in the anterior cervical lymph nodes. The likelihood of strep throat is greater than 40% when all four elements are present. It is less than 3% in patients with just one element. Patients with two or three of the criteria should be evaluated further with rapid antigen tests or throat culture before antibiotics are prescribed.
Centor criteria is a sample topic from the Taber's Medical Dictionary.
