Suman Ghosh

A multi-disciplinary team at UF led by Dr. Suman Ghosh in the Division of Pediatric Neurology studied a cluster of 4 children who were diagnosed with Mycoplasma pneumoniae encephalitis, and found that all 4 improved rapidly after IVIG administration. This suggests that IVIG therapy should be considered in children diagnosed or suspected of having this disease.
