is it possible for a child to be born with hiv, and without taking any kind of medication to live for 12 years or more without developing any kind of symptoms or disease?
Response from Dr. Luzuriaga
Yes, it is possible, although most HIV-infected children will show symptoms of infection prior to 12 years of age.
