Dear Mr. Frascino, I have had some blood tests done to confirm if i have suffered from mumps. My question is: would they also see in those same tests if i have the VIH? I dont know if you see all viral illnesses in this kind of test. Thank you very much in advance

HIV (VIH) testing requires a very specific test. Screening for immunity to mumps would not provide any information about HIV status. You can read more about HIV tests in the section titled "HIV Testing Basics" that can be easily accessed on The Body's homepage under Quick Links.
