Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome - Symptoms & Treatment


Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is an illness that weakens the body's immune system.The immune systems of people with AIDS are not able to fight off certain infections and cancers. When HIV weakens the immune system, "opportunistic" infections can take advantage of this weakened state and cause illness. Opportunistic infections include Kaposi's sarcoma and pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. Having been infected with HIV (being HIV positive and having HIV antibodies in the blood) is not the same as having AIDS. Transmission of the HIV virus occurs most commonly as a result of sexual intercourse. Infection with HIV does not necessarily mean that a person has AIDS. Physicians prefer to use the term AIDS for cases where a person has reached the final, life-threatening stage of HIV infection.
