Our program is the only comprehensive diagnostic and treatment program in south and central Texas for primary immune deficiency disorders and related syndromes. We offer:
- Evaluation of children with recurrent, chronic or unusual infections
- Evaluation of children with potential immune deficiency
- Infusion of IVIG and management of home IVIG and SCIG infusions
- Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for severe immune deficiency, in cooperation with the Texas Transplant Institute
The clinic, directed by Dr. Infante, also provides consultation for other complex immune-mediated disorders, including: ALPS; PFAPA and other periodic fever/autoinflammatory syndromes; children with transplant and cancer therapy-related immune suppression; and adults with primary immune deficiency. For help with HIV/AIDS, please see below.
The immunology program actively participates in national registry programs for primary immune deficiency and industry-sponsored clinical trials of immunoglobulin products and other drugs.
Children’s Immunology Clinic is operated in collaboration with the Division of Hematology/Oncology. The clinic meets every Thursday mornings from 8 am until noon. Call 210-358-5437 for appointments and information. Physician referral is strongly recommended.
Clinical faculty from the Division of Pediatric Immunology and Infectious Diseases have a group practice that provides consultations in the evaluation and management of infectious diseases that occur in children, with a collective expertise that provides a comprehensive scope of practice within this subspecialty. Individual special interests include opportunistic infections that occur in children with cancer and those who have received organ transplantation, and infections that occur in children with primary immunodeficiency’s.
The primary clinical practices of the faculty are based at University Hospital. Physicians desiring consultation, or to speak with the clinical faculty member Dr. Dennis Conrad, may call 210-567-5250 any time.
