Pediatrics Infectious Diseases

Pediatrics Infectious Diseases that include Borrelia burgdorferi and tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) virus are 2 types of tick-borne pathogens that can cause central nervous system infection. Routine diagnostics have so far included analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cell numbers, CSF serology for Borrelia burgdorferi and serum serology for TBE virus. However, early diagnosis may be difficult based on antibody detection which takes time to analyze, and with the possibility of false negative results, thus delaying treatment. Cytokine analyses are becoming increasingly available in clinical routine care and may offer important information.

Pediatric infectious diseases specialists treat a wide range of infectious and immunologic diseases such as those caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Other pediatric infectious diseases specialists are consulted for diseases that are complicated or atypical, including
