HIV - Baby Can They Convert?
Nov 4, 2003
I am HIV+, unknown when I was infected, found out when my baby was 2. My baby is negative. My husband is negative. I heard today that they are seeing more and more children from HIV+ mothers who test negative at birth convert to being positive when they are around ten years of age...Is there any truth into this. The source was not reliable.
Response from Dr. Pierone
I have never heard of an uninfected child showing signs of infection at age 10 or any age. It just doesn't make sense. Please don't worry.
