Lurie Children's Division of Infectious Diseases offers comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for children with a wide variety of infectious diseases, including many that are rarely seen in this country. Children throughout the nation are referred to our division for inpatient and outpatient evaluation and treatment.
Established in 1987, our Pediatric & Adolescent HIV/AIDS Program cares for more children and adolescents than any other pediatric HIV service provider in the region.

The head of our division, Stanford Shulman, MD, is the Virginia H. Rogers Professor of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Shulman’s special interests include Kawasaki disease, infective endocarditis, rheumatic fever and group A strep infections.
