The Centor and McIsaac scores guide testing and treatment for group A streptococcal (GAS) pharyngitis but were derived from smaller populations. Using these scores, Fine and colleagues perform a national-scale validation of the prediction models from 206 870 patients with painful throat. In the related Invited Commentary, Centor illuminates the concepts involved.
