Infectious Diseases

The pediatric infectious diseases division, directed by Dr. Pisespong Patamasucon, provides mainly inpatient consultation and a small number of outpatient consultations for the complex problems of infectious diseases in children. These include: bacterial, fungal, viral infections, parasitic infections, antibiotic management, and diagnostic, including travel related issues. For information regarding travel, see the CDC's International Traveler's page. Also of interest to parents is the CDC Childhood Immunization Schedule. Both Dr. Pisespong Patamasucon and Dr. Echezona Ezeanolue staff this division.

Dr. Ezeanolue's special interest is HIV and he plans, in addition to teaching, to develop a clinical research program for children with HIV.

Dr. Patamasucon has developed international educational opportunities for faculty, residents and medical students at a number of medical facilities in Thailand, including Pramongkutklao Army Medical School, with anticipation of extending the educational opportunity to the School of Tropical Medicine and Khon Kaen University.

Pediatric infectious diseases rotations are available for medical students and residents on a monthly basis. Methods of teaching include clinical case discussions, didactic lectures and discussions of selected topics on an individual basis.
