Division of Infectious Diseases Annual Report

The specialists in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Nationwide Children’s Hospital provide expertise in the diagnosis and management of children with all types of acute and chronic infections in both immune-competent and immune compromised children. Our physicians provide direct care for patients admitted to the Nationwide Children’s Infectious Diseases Unit and clinical consultation for patients with complicated infectious diseases throughout the hospital, in close partnership with their primary care teams. We have developed close clinical and research collaborations with physicians in Hematology, Oncology & Blood and Marrow Transplant; Pediatric Critical Care; Cardiology, Lung, Heart and Liver Transplantation; Neonatology and the various surgical departments in order to optimize the infectious diseases-related care of patients. Patients are also evaluated in the ambulatory setting following referral to the Infectious Diseases, Tuberculosis, Neonatal Infectious Disease, Host Defense, Kawasaki Disease, Travel Medicine, Hepatitis C, and the Family AIDS Clinic Education Services (FACES) clinics located on the Nationwide Children’s main campus.

Additionally, our division offers consultation to external providers and their patients through the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Physician Consult and Transfer Center. Research is conducted through the division and in collaboration with our colleagues from the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory, the Center for Microbial Pathogenesis, the Center for Vaccines and Immunity and other centers in the Abigail Wexner Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s, as well as
national and international collaborators.

Risk for Serious Complications From Vaccine-Preventable Infections After Hematopoietic Cell Transplant

When a hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) recipient at Nationwide Children’s Hospital was diagnosed with a vaccine-preventable infection (VPI), treating clinicians decided to evaluate the burden of VPI in HCT patients at Nationwide Children’s and elsewhere. The team collected post-HCT VPI data on more than 9,500 children across the United States.
