hiv undetected

Aug 28, 2012

Is it possible that my child was born HIV positive 10 years ago and we still do not know it?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

It would be quite unusual for a 10 year old child to have been born with HIV and asymptomatic. BTW, this situation is only possible if the mother was HIV positive.

Having said that, the only way to be sure is to have HIV testing done.

Be well, BY
