Clinic at the Royal Children's Hospital

Children commonly present to their local doctors with recurrent infections and may receive multiple courses of antibiotics. In some cases, there is a question as to whether tonsillectomy or grommets should be considered. There may also be a question about underlying immune problems. We can appropriately investigate and advise on the management of these recurrent infections and can assist in the evaluation and management of potentially more significant infections including glandular fever, urinary tract infections and lower respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia and bronchiolitis.

The following practitioners at CPMG can be of service in evaluating and managing infectious diseases in infants, children and adolescents:
