VIH: Una simple pregunta
Mar 30, 2001

Tengo una duda. El VIH se transmite por la sangre que trae un mosquito en el estomago?. Mat a un mosquito y al aplastarlo la sangre que este traa se quedo en mi mano. Corri algun riesgo al dejar la sangre un tiempo y despues tocarme la boca? la nariz? Por favor contestenme.

Response from Dr. Tebas

La respuesta es no se transmite por insectos. No hay ningun caso probado de transmision por esa ruta.
