Laboratory Diagnosis of Human Immunodeficiency Deficiency Virus Infection

Open All Close All

  • "The acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is the clinically apparent preterminal stage of the prolonged infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), most often manifested as Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, Kaposi's sarcoma, or other opportunistic infections or malignancies. AIDS is by definition a clinical syndrome diagnosis. This article deals exclusively with the diagnosis of HIV infection, not with AIDS, and reflects the author's belief that quality medical care demands a precise etiologic diagnosis. A United States Presidential Commission recently stated that 'The term AIDS is obsolete.' Nowhere is this more true than in the diagnostic laboratory.
