Abstract

HIV infection/AIDS in infants and children under the age of 13 years expresses itself clinically so differently from the same infection in adults that a separate classification of the symptomatology has been adopted. Recurrent bacterial infections, as well as various opportunistic infections predominate, and while Kaposi's sarcoma is infrequent in pediatric patients, lymphomas occur with high frequency. The diagnosis of HIV infection/AIDS in children is presented.
