Infectious Diseases

Infections are a common part of childhood, but some infections ail children for long periods of time—potentially their entire lives—or have very serious symptoms that need specialized treatment. That's where we come in. The infectious diseases department of Children's Minnesota diagnoses and treats acute and chronic infectious diseases, in both hospitalized patients and outpatient/clinical settings.

Conditions and Services
