St. Luke's Children's Infections and Immune Deficiency

Our experienced team cares for babies, children, and teens who have problems such as frequent infections, unexplained fever, and chronic sinus and ear infections. We also help identify and treat conditions including primary immune deficiency, infectious mononucleosis, acute arthritis, and viral hepatitis. 

We manage and treat CMV, HSV, and HIV infections; chest infections; and bone and joint infections; as well as MRSA and other antibiotic-resistant infections. And we offer immunizations, especially for vaccines that are not available in your primary care clinic, as well as follow-up care for bone marrow and organ transplants.

Supporting your health education is a priority for us and our registered nurse can teach you and your child how to do your own specialized therapies and injections.  Please discuss with your physician which types of visits are appropriate for your child’s primary care clinic versus those best served by our clinic.
