Childhood infections are one of the most common reasons for a parent to bring a child to see a healthcare provider. Our specialists assist in the diagnosis and management of children with a variety of known or suspected infections as well as immune deficiencies. Children are commonly referred for outpatient evaluation of recurrent or prolonged infections, persistent fever, suspected immune deficiency, enlarged lymph nodes, pneumonia, and a wide range of childhood infections. We also treat and manage children with chronic infections such as HIV, Hepatitis B Virus, and Hepatitis C Virus.

Children with meningitis, encephalitis, bone infections, endocarditis, and other serious and complex infections are usually evaluated by infectious disease specialists in the inpatient setting at N.C. Children’s Hospital.
