Infection, by definition, means that an infectious agent enters the body and reproduces there. However, the symptoms do not have to appear during this time. If symptoms of disease occur with infection, infectious disease is mentioned. Signs and symptoms of infectious diseases can be very different. In addition to general findings such as fever, chills, shivering, weakness, fatigue, anorexia, pain, nausea and vomiting, specific signs and symptoms that develop depending on the type of agent and the location of the infection, there may be symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation, joint pain, rashes and rubescence in the body, cough, jaundice, and consciousness disorders.
In the Hisar Intercontinental Hospital Infectious Diseases Department, modern medicine approaches are used for many diseases such as febrile and infectious diseases, hospital infections, sexually transmitted diseases (HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, etc.) and infectious hepatitis (contagious jaundice). In addition, consultancy services are provided on all these infections and their control. Immune response develops in most infectious diseases, so it is possible to protect some infectious diseases with vaccines. For this reason, adult vaccination services (tetanus, hepatitis B, influenza, pneumococcus, etc.) are also provided.
