Pediatric Immunology

Pediatric immunology is a branch of science that studies the ability of the child's body to resist foreign agents, including infections and viruses. It is also an important branch of medicine that deals with the identification and correction of immunodeficiency in children.

Pediatric Immunology

Paediatric immunology is a branch of science that studies the ability of children's bodies to resist foreign entities, including infections and viruses. A paediatric immunologist is a specialist who knows how children's immune systems work, diagnoses diseases caused by immunodeficiencies and prescribes the necessary treatment.

Immunology is a branch of medicine whose main aim is to solve problems related to the production of antibodies in response to foreign elements (antigens) in the body. The body's ability to identify antigens and produce antibodies to maintain biological integrity is called immunity. Disruption of its functions leads to various diseases, which are treated by paediatricians and immunologists.

Everyone has innate (hereditary) immunity, formed in the course of evolutionary development. It reacts more quickly to pathogens but recognises them with less precision.

During the individual development of the organism (ontogenesis), acquired (adaptive) immunity - the ability to resist certain antigens that the immune system has already encountered - is formed. In this case, immunological memory is involved. Acquired immunity identifies the pathogen more precisely and deals with it more effectively. It can be acquired after an illness or as a result of a vaccination.

Children's immune systems are still in their formative stages and therefore their bodies are particularly vulnerable to environmental factors. In addition, vigorous growth takes up a lot of internal resources. Accordingly, the child, in the development of acquired immunity, encounters critical periods when the body's reaction to pathogens can be inadequate and even paradoxical: both insufficient for protection - immunodeficiencies, and excessive - autoimmune reactions.

During such periods it is especially important to have a timely examination by a paediatric immunologist and, if necessary, carry out prevention of immune system disorders, and in the case of disease, to undergo treatment. A qualified specialist will select effective methods for restoring health and correcting immunity (as indicated) so that the immune system can cope with illnesses on its own in the future.

When is it Time to See Paediatric Immunologist?

A malfunction of the immune system can have serious consequences for the child's body. It is important to detect symptoms such as reactions to external stimuli, allergies or immunodeficiencies in good time.

If symptoms of reduced immunity occur, a visit to a paediatrician and immunologist is highly recommended. Even when in doubt, the best thing to do is to have a check-up so that your child's health and normal development are not compromised.

Symptoms

The consultation of a paediatric immunologist is needed in the following cases:

  • chronic fatigue, weakness, sleepiness;
  • frequent illnesses with a severe and prolonged course;
  • persistent crying, redness and eye gums;
  • redness, peeling of the skin, rashes;
  • body aches and pains in muscles and joints;
  • problems with the digestive system;
  • restlessness, sleep disturbances;
  • increased irritability.

Which Diseases Does Immunologist Treat?

Modern immunological tests enable immunologists to diagnose, treat, prevent and treat diseases on time:

  • Otitis
  • Herpes
  • Eczema
  • Allergy
  • Meningitis
  • Colds, acute respiratory infections
  • Chronic autoimmune diseases
  • Upper respiratory illnesses, including bronchial asthma and atypical pneumonia
  • Complications caused by vaccinations or serious illnesses

Immune System Disorders Diagnostics

A consultation with an immunologist is the only way to diagnose immune system disorders in children. The initial examination by an immunologist is designed to detect external symptoms of disease. The doctor also looks at the child's general condition and takes a medical history (asking the parents about symptoms, recent illnesses, etc.).

During the appointment, the immunologist makes a referral for:

  • bacterial cultures;
  • allergy test; - allergy test; - immunogram;
  • immunogram;
  • immunological tests;
  • immunological blood tests;
  • tests for specific immunoglobulins;
  • cytological scrapings;
  • X-ray;
  • Ultrasound.

If the pregnant woman has a family history of immunodeficiency, intrauterine screening is likely to be indicated.

Disorders Treatment in Immunology

The treatment of immune system disorders largely depends on the immunologist's diagnosis, the child's current condition, contraindications, the nature of the disease and other factors.

Eliminating the cause of the immune disorder and developing preventive measures to reduce the risk of recurrent disease is important for the management of recurrent infections. For the treatment and prevention of the most common recurrent diseases, immunology uses antibiotic therapy (if the pathology is caused by bacteria or fungi), targeted antiviral therapy or symptomatic therapy.

Immunotherapy is treatment with immunostimulants to improve the body's defence functions. Immunotherapy can be prescribed to correct the immune system:

  • immunoglobulin therapy;
  • interferon-gamma therapy;
  • growth factor therapy (for white blood cell deficiency).

Immunisation is used to support the organism in immunocompromised children, but live vaccines are contraindicated in some cases in children with primary immunodeficiency. Timely medical attention plays an important role here. The earlier the disease is detected, the easier it is to treat and deal with the effects on the child's body.
