Estamos constantemente travando uma batalha. Contra quem? Diversos patógenos, dentre eles: príons, vírus, bactérias, protozoários, fungos, animais e parasitas. Agora, quando pensamos em pediatria, isso é ainda mais determinante justamente pelo estilo de vida que nossas crianças levam - brincadeiras, experiências e descobertas do mundo. Para tanto, contamos com um sistema natural de defesa extremamente eficiente - mas que, as vezes, pode falhar.
Pensando nisso, segue o que há de mais novo em Infectologia em Pediatria para que você, doutor(a), atualize sua estante e também se prepare melhor para ajudar seus pequenos pacientes nessa empreitada.
