Akron Children's pediatric infectious disease specialists diagnose and treat patients from birth through young adulthood.
Diagnoses begin with a detailed review of the child's medical and family histories and a thorough physical exam. Lab tests and imaging techniques are also included in the diagnostic services.
Our board-certified pediatric infectious disease doctors specialize in diseases and syndromes that attack or compromise the immune system, including persistent infections that do not respond to conventional antibiotic treatments.
We also consult on patients with complex, undiagnosed diseases and fevers of unknown origin.
Akron Children's Division of Pediatric Infectious Disease is involved in research into new methods and medicines for the treatment of these diseases.
We have participated in a number of vaccine trials, including chickenpox, pertussis and meningococcal meningitis, to test their safety and effectiveness before they are recommended for FDA approval.
