Sep 22, 2001
Is HIV present in the blood until death? Does HIV manifest into something else when a person goes "full blown?"

HIV is present in the blood and all organs until death. HIV itself does not manifest into something else. The progression of disease causes a significant reduction in the immune system's ability to combat opportunistic infections and malignancies.
