The high prevalence, morbidity, and mortality of infectious diseases in the geriatric population mandates that clinicians caring for older patients become better acquainted and familiar with the special and unique characteristics and features of this common clinical problem. Only through such awareness and understanding will clinical outcomes, functional capacity, and quality of life be improved in the elderly population.
