Infectious diseases clinic

Our Centre has an Infectious Diseases Clinic run by infectious diseases specialist, pediatrician, sports and travel medicine doctor Ernest Kuchar.

We deal with the diagnosis and treatment of the following infectious diseases:

  • lyme borreliosis – is a chronic disease, which occurs most often as a result of a tick bite, which is its carrier. The symptoms of infection are not characteristic and may resemble a common cold. However, the basic symptom is “migratory erythema” accompanied by a poor mood, subfebrile state or fever, chronic fatigue, weight loss. Chronic Lyme borreliosis is very dangerous because it has many complications. It is very important to prevent such complications, because they can be more dangerous than the disease itself. They lead to changes in the circulatory, nervous and motor systems, as well as skin changes. Lyme borreliosis can also develop into meningitis. Other symptoms of Lyme borreliosis are myocarditis, gastrointestinal disorders (reflux, diarrhoea), bladder inflammation and menstrual problems. All types of Lyme borreliosis are treated with an antibiotic.
  • chlamydia – are intracellular bacteria, which after entering the human body penetrate into the cells, where they multiply and then spread with blood. There are 3 species of bacteria: Chlamydia trachomatis (sexually transmitted), Chlamydia pneumoniae (digestive transmission), Chlamydia psittaci (infection from birds). The treatment consists of antibiotic therapy. Due to the very easy transmission of the infection and its asymptomatic course it is recommended to apply antibiotic therapy in both partners.
  • boston disease – most often attacks children, often confused with smallpox. Disease caused by viruses. The most common symptoms include: fever, sore throat, rash, malaise, nausea, diarrhoea.
  • tick-borne diesases – bartonella, anaplasmosis, babesiosis, tick-borne encephalitis, Q-fever.
  • fibromyalgia – chronic generalised muscle and joint pain. Its characteristic feature is the occurrence of the so called “fattening points”, i.e. places on the body with excessive sensitivity to pressure. Apart from pain, there are also other ailments which hinder and significantly worsen daily functioning such as: tiredness, sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, irritable bowel symptoms, bladder problems, dyspnea, hand numbness, migraines, painful periods. In case of treatment, the most commonly used drugs are: antidepressants, analgesics, antiepileptic, muscle relaxants. Non-pharmacological treatment is equally important. Patients are recommended to reduce stress, change their job position, take a holiday and rest.
  • parasitic diseases,
  • tropical diseases – legionellosis, malaria, yellow fever, dengue fever, Japanese encephalitis,
  • cytomegaly – venereal infectious disease. Infection occurs through sexual intercourse with an infected person or through the droplet route. 99% of the virus infection is asymptomatic.
  • eosinophilia,
  • HSV – virus responsible for herpes.
  • mycoplasm,
  • recurring infections,
  • problems when you get back from the tropics,
  • toxoplasmosis,
  • viral hepatitis (A, B, C, other),
  • rashes,
  • immunosuppression,
  • congenital infections.
