Pediatric HIV

Vertical transmission of HIV from a mother to a child is the main route by which childhood HIV (Pediatric HIV) infection is acquired; the risk of perinatal acquisition is 25-40% without intervention. Perinatal transmission of the infection by the mother to a child accounts for 80% of pediatric HIV disease cases in the United States. In children, HIV symptoms manifest much earlier. Some children with HIV will develop serious signs and symptoms within the first 12–24 months of life. These children are referred to as rapid progressors since they progress very rapidly to AIDS-defining conditions.
