Pediatric Clinical Immunology

image description

If your child suffers from recurring infections, they may be the result of an immune disorder – a lack of something in your child’s immune system. Immune disorders reduce your child’s ability to fight infection. Allergies, food allergies, eczema and asthma are examples of immune disorders.

As the leading respiratory hospital in the nation, National Jewish Health for Kids in Denver, Colorado, cares for children of all ages with both common and rare immune disorders. Our multidisciplinary team of experts includes pediatric immunologists, nurses, psychosocial clinicians and more. We work together to provide accurate diagnosis and individualized treatment for your child.
