As for people wondering why it would take longer than six months to be positive... Could the fact that it is a "rare" event be due to the fact that experts don't recommend further testing after six months? It seems as though people who still worry about their hiv status after testing negative at six months are treated like idiots. Rare does not mean "never happens" does it?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

We are still waiting for the documented reports in the modern era.

New improved diagnostic tests ?
