Pediatric Infections

Infection is the invasion of an organism's body tissues by disease causing agents, their growth, and the reaction of host tissues to these organisms and the toxins they produce. Pediatric infections are caused by infectious agents including viruses, viroid’s, prions, bacteria, nematodes such as parasitic roundworms and pinworms, arthropods such as ticks, mites, fleas, and lice, fungi such as ringworm, and other macro parasites such as tapeworms and other helminths. Specific medications used to treat pediatric infections include antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals, antiprotozoal, and anthelminthic.
