We treat patients with demanding infectious diseases. Problems related to differential diagnostics are also part of our everyday work.

These are the most common conditions we study and treat:

  • HIV
  • Prolonged fever of unknown cause
  • Borreliosis
  • Immune deficiencies
  • Infections of travellers and migrants
  • Follow-up treatment and follow-up of patients with severe infections having required hospital treatment
  • Foreign body infections

About half of our patients are referred to us by physicians at health care centres and local hospitals. The remaining half attend for check-ups after treatment at a ward or after a visit to the emergency clinic.

Our aim is to make a swift assessment of the patient's condition and illness and to perform all necessary laboratory tests and imaging procedures within a minimum time frame.

The outcomes of the assessments, tests and imaging procedures are discussed personally with the patient either over phone or at a visit to the clinic. Usually the pertinent patient records are mailed to the patient's home address and to the health care centre or the referring physician.

We are a university hospital and participate in clinical and nursing trials related to our medical specialty. Participation in trials is voluntary and written informed consent is required of the participant.

Our clinic resides in the Turku University Hospital under the Internal Medicine Outpatient Clinic of Operational division: Medicine.
