|HIV Exposed Infant
Sep 5, 2001
When an infant born to an HIV+ mom becomes infected at birth does it show any symptoms of infection such as fever, loss of appetite, ete?
Response from Dr. Luzuriaga
While many adults experience symptoms (fever, rash, mononucleosis-like syndrome) during primary infection, these symptoms are uncommon in very young infants. Young infants more commonly present with thrush (white coating of the tongue due to a fungal infection), hepatosplenomegaly (enlarged liver and spleen), or failure to thrive (poor growth).
