HIV infection sites in infants and children
Oct 15, 2001

I have read that the central nervous system is the largest site for HIV infections in infants and children. I was trying to find data to support this, but was unable to. Why is the central nervous system affected more than other systems such as the GI, integumentary, or musculoskeletal?

Response from Dr. Sullivan

The CNS may be or may not be involved in HIV infection in infants and children; JLS.
