Infectious Diseases

An infectious disease specialist works to diagnose and treat disease caused by a biological agent (e.g. virus, bacterium or parasite), as opposed to physical (e.g. burns) or chemical (e.g. intoxication) causes. Examples of infectious diseases include influenza and pertussis (whooping cough).
