Abstract

Management of infectious diseases in athletes encompasses a wide range of pathogens, clinical presentations, and treatment options. Certain athletic activities and training regimens may predispose athletes to increased risk of contracting infectious diseases, some of which may limit athletic participation and pose the threat of significant morbidity. The sports medicine physician plays an important role as a first line of defense in preventing, recognizing, and appropriately treating infectious diseases in athletes.
