Infectious diseases account for 19% of all physician encounters and close to 130 million ambulatory care visits in the United States annually. Common infections include upper respiratory tract infection, urinary tract infection, sexually transmitted illness, and enteric infections; these infections are the most frequent reasons for adult office visits. Common infectious diseases with public health significance are described in this chapter. Non-travel-related immunization is an important component of infectious disease prevention.
