|Could a child born to HIV+ Mother be HIV+ at 8 years without SYMPTOMS?
Jan 25, 2003
An HIV+ mother had a newborn who was put on AZT in 1995. Could that child be HIV+ now? If so, would they be tested yearly by regular pediatrician?
Response from Dr. Jackson
If the baby tested negative for HIV antibody after 18 months of age, the baby is not infected.
Will a baby affect my condition & no.s??
