A wide range of bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic infections can make babies and children sick – and worry parents. The specialists at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals Pediatric Infectious Diseases program are experts in diagnosing even the most challenging cases and devoted to providing each child with the right care. When young patients need round-the-clock treatment to ensure full recovery, our doctors provide hands-on care in the hospital's neonatal and pediatric intensive care units.
Our specialists' expertise includes infections related to cancer or its treatments; those related to bone marrow or organ transplants; infections kids may pick up when traveling; and complications from surgery, such as an infected incision. We are also one of the Bay Area's premier centers providing care for HIV-positive children with tuberculosis.
