Infectious Diseases and Virology
Infectious diseases occur when organisms such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi enter our bodies and make us sick. Often, these illnesses can be passed from person to person. We care for children with the most complicated illnesses, including those that develop when your child's natural defenses (immune system) are not working properly. Our Virology team specializes in treating children with HIV and AIDS.
Our team is expert at choosing medicines best suited to your child's condition, in doses that are appropriate for growing children. We work closely with many of Seattle Children's clinics and services, including Orthopedics, Immunology and Home Care Services, to ensure your child receives the best possible treatment.
