Re: HIV/AIDS question [HAPP-L]



Students have asked me about, and I remember hearing about, newborns that 
test "HIV positive" after birth, but then test "negative" at around age 18 
months.  Am I dreaming?  Was this report artifactual, or are there cases 
where only antibodies cross the placenta, and the child doesn't acquire the 
virus itself?
