Your doctor might refer you to an ID specialist when

•  an infection is difficult to diagnose

•  an infection is accompanied by a high fever

•  a patient does not respond to treatment

•  a healthy person plans to travel to a foreign country or a location where infection risk is higher

•  treating illnesses becomes a part of a patient's overall care, for example, a patient with HIV/AIDS

In all of these cases, the specialized training and diagnostic tools of the ID specialist can help determine the cause of your infection and the best approach to treatment.

Infectious diseases are caused by microscopic organisms that penetrate the body’s natural barriers and multiply to create symptoms that can range from mild to deadly. Although progress has been made to eradicate or control many infectious diseases, humankind remains vulnerable to a wide array of new and resurgent organisms.
