Infectious diseases add significant volume in pediatrics. Bacteria, viruses and other pathogens are primarily responsible many diseases.
Thus, the purpose of this section in the site is to shed light and help parents with useful information on these common topics.
Also, soon in this area are two non-infectious subjects but from the field of rheumatology. Two inflammatory diseases – Kawasaki disease probably caused by an infectious trigger and PFAPA syndrome that mimics bacterial tonsillitis.
