    HIV/AIDS: Diagnosis, symptoms, and treatment. Doctors diagnose HIV infection with tests to detect HIV antibodies in the blood. These antibodies usually appear in the bloodstream three to eight weeks after infection, though it may take as long as six months for these antibodies to show up. HIV enters the body and binds to dendritic cells (orange cells with projections) which carry the virus to CD4+ T cells in lymphoid tissue establishing the infection. Virus replication accelerates producing massive viremia and wide dissemination of virus throughout the body's lymphoid tissues.

Because adoptees may come from populations at high risk of infection, screening for HIV should be performed for all internationally adopted children. The decision to screen immigrant children for HIV depends on findings from the history and physical examination. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), a member of the retrovirus family, is the causative agent of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).HIV invades various immune cells (e.g., CD4+ T cells and monocytes) resulting in a decline in CD4+ T cell numbers below the critical level, and loss of cell-mediated immunity − therefore, the body becomes progressively more susceptible to opportunistic.

Approximately 5% to 10% of people with HIV in the United States also have chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. 1 The progression of chronic HBV to cirrhosis, end-stage liver disease, or hepatocellular carcinoma is more rapid in persons with HBV/HIV coinfection than in persons with chronic HBV monoinfection.
