Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms – such as bacteria,
fungi, viruses or parasites. They’re usually harmless and often
live on your body, but sometimes they can cause disease and make you ill.
Infectious disease specialists treat:
- Infections that are difficult to diagnose
- Infections that are accompanied by a high fever
- Illnesses that do not respond to traditional treatment
