Nowadays infectious diseases are among the most serious problems as its main distinguishing feature is that an infected person spreads a pathogen into the environment and becomes a source of new infections.

There are different types of the infectious diseases: bacterial and viral, acute and chronic, with and without fever, as well as infectious diseases with prolonged fever.

The most common infections are:

influenza, parainfluenza, adenovirus, coronavirus, rhinovirus, respiratory syncytial viral infection, herpes viruses and viruses that cause hepatitis A, B, C, D, E, EBV, CMV;

 infections of the skin and subcutaneous tissue (erysipelas, acute lymphadenitis, local infection of the subcutaneous tissue);

insect bite infections such as Borreliosis, Lyme disease, leishmaniasis, and others.

Various diagnostic methods are used for the identification of infectious diseases but the collected anamnesis and patient complaints are essential:

  • General weakness, pain in joints and muscles
  • Sore throat, wheezing
  • Fever, chills
  • Swollen lymph nodes
