In addition, children with prolonged and recurrent fever, as well as suspected or proven cases of lyme disease, tuberculosis and Kawasaki syndrome are seen after referral by their primary physician.

Specialized care is also available for infants born to HIV-positive mothers and for all pediatric patients with proven HIV infection. Inpatient services are provided on the Pediatrics Unit at Staten Island University Hospital.
