Pediatric Infectious Diseases

Pediatric Infectious Diseases specialists are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites.

Our providers are consulted for recurring, persistent, rare or complex infections and care for children from birth through the teen years.

Our service most commonly cares for children with:

  • Fever of unknown origin
  • Respiratory syncytial virus
  • Bone and joint infections
  • Tuberculosis
  • Influenza
  • Meningitis
  • Lyme disease
  • Tropical diseases such as malaria, dengue
  • MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus)

We believe that the more you know about your child's illness, the better you will be able to care for them.

This website is therefore designed to provide you with basic information about our service, prepare you and your child to visit our clinic, and to equip you to guide them toward recovery.
