Pediatric infectious disease specialists treat children with uncommon or serious infections. These can be infections that are difficult to identify, are hard to treat, or are complicating another condition like prematurity or cancer. We also care for children with compromised immune systems.
If your pediatrician thinks your child has a complicated infection, he or she may refer you to the pediatric infectious disease team at Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's.
The pediatric infectious disease team is also involved in research projects—such as yearly influenza studies—to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat infectious diseases.
