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.
