DEPARTMENT OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE
Specialists in infectious diseases take charge of diagnosing and treating various kinds of infectious diseases caused by bacteria, virus, fungi, and parasites. Infectious diseases can arise from any parts of body and sometimes occur as a systemic disease. The severity of infectious disease can vary from mild disease, such as upper respiratory infection, to severe diseases, such as sepsis, which can cause death in several hours unless proper treatments are applied. We diagnose by finding the right cause and apply appropriate treatment to patients who are suspected to have an infectious disease. We also provide consultation for travelers to prevent various tropical disease and provide elderly and patients under chronic disease with vaccination.
