  • If infant negative, repeat tests after 3-6 months. If infant still breastfeeding, wait until 3 months after cessation of breastfeeding to confirm final HIV status.
  • Gross case of hairy leukoplakia on the lateral border of the tongue. It appears as a corrugated white keratotic lesion.
  • P. Carinii has been renamed P. jiroveci but the eponym PCP is retained (Emerg Infect Dis 2002;8:891
  • Gross case of hairy leukoplakia on the lateral border of the tongue. It appears as a corrugated white keratotic lesion.
  • Figure 14-36. Coccidioidomycosis. Coccidioides immitis infection presented with cough, fever, night sweats, weight loss, and a diffuse reticulonodular infiltrate on the chest radiograph. The presence of diffuse bilateral reticulonodular or nodular infiltrates is one of the most consistent findings in patients with AIDS and coccidioidomycosis. ( From Bronnimann et al. []; with permission.)
  • The first regimen must be selected with the aim of suppressing the virus replication to the maximum achievable levels in the shortest time possible. It needs also to have the quality of durability by not inducing resistance early . Its side effects must be tolerable to the patient so that the quality of life is improved.
  • HF =hepatic failure; RF = renal failure
  • combination of TDF with ddI leads to unpredictable ddI levels and increased ddI toxicity
  • HF =hepatic failure; RF = renal failure
  • didanosine + abacavir + PI/ritonavir (ddI) (ABC) (LPV/r if NFV used)

    22. 23. Clinical suspicion of HIV <ul><li>First do an initial clinical assessment of child and suspect HIV, </li></ul><ul><li>Certain clinical conditions, if present, point to high probability of HIV infection in the child </li></ul>
    23. 24. Clinical signs & conditions suggestive of HIV infection in a child (1) <ul><li>Oesophageal candidiasis </li></ul><ul><li>Herpes zoster (shingles) </li></ul><ul><li>Invasive salmonella infection </li></ul><ul><li>Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia (PCP) </li></ul><ul><li>Extrapulmonary cryptococcosis </li></ul><ul><li>Lymphoma </li></ul><ul><li>Kaposi’s sarcoma </li></ul>

    29. 30. Laboratory Diagnosis <ul><li>There are two types of laboratory tests for HIV diagnosis: </li></ul><ul><li>Antibody tests-detect antibody toHIV </li></ul><ul><li>Virologic tests-detect HIV virus or antigen </li></ul>
    30. 31. Laboratory Diagnosis Child >18 months <ul><li>Child > 18 months: </li></ul><ul><li>A positive HIV antibody test confirms HIV infection as maternal antibodies have cleared </li></ul><ul><li>A negative HIV antibody test rules out HIV infection in non breast feeding child </li></ul>
    31. 32. Laboratory Diagnosis Child < 18 months <ul><li>Child < 18 months, HIV Antibody (Ab) may come from: </li></ul><ul><li>Maternal Ab passively transferred to infant </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Maternal Ab may persist in her infant up to 18 months </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ab test is +ve in ALL children born to HIV+ women, including those that are NOT infected (gives false +ve results) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Infant generated Ab if infant is HIV infected. </li></ul><ul><li>A positive HIV Ab test at this age is therefore not diagnostic , only shows child has been HIV exposed </li></ul>
    32. 33. Laboratory Diagnosis Virologic tests <ul><li>Virologic test – detect HIV virus in blood </li></ul><ul><li>Is ideal method of HIV diagnosis in child under 18 months </li></ul><ul><li>Various types: </li></ul><ul><li>- RNA PCR - most available, also gives viral load </li></ul><ul><li>- DNA PCR – not widely available </li></ul><ul><li>- P24 antigen (immune-complex dissociated) </li></ul><ul><li>When to do virologic test: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not BF: test at age 1 month repeat 3 months later </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>BF: wait until 3 months after cessation of BF to confirm final HIV status. </li></ul></ul>
    33. 34. When to do PCR for HIV diagnosis of Child < 18 months <ul><li>30 % become infected through MTCT </li></ul><ul><ul><li>5 % intrauterine-PCR +ve in first week of life </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>15% during delivery-PCR +ve by age 1 month </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>10% via breast feeding-Do PCR 1 month after stopping breast feeding </li></ul></ul>
    34. 35. When to do PCR for HIV diagnosis of child <18 months <ul><li>If child NOT breast feeding: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do PCR from 4 to 6 weeks, repeat after 3 month </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If child IS breast feeding: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do PCR from age 1 month </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If positive at 1 month, encourage mother to continue BF </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If negative, encourage mother to consider stopping BF early ( IF REPLACEMENT FEEDING IS AFFORDABLE, ACCESIBLE, FEASIBLE, SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE) </li></ul></ul></ul>
    35. 36. Interpretation of laboratory diagnosis <ul><li>Diagnostic Gold standard- is to perform two tests to confirm or rule out HIV infection </li></ul><ul><li>2 positive virological tests performed on blood samples taken on 2 separate dates confirms HIV infection . </li></ul><ul><li>2 or more negative virological tests at age >1 month, one of which is performed at age >4 months in a non- breastfed infant rules out HIV infection. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember, if breast feeding wait 1 month after cessation of breastfeeding. </li></ul>
    36. 37. HIV Diagnosis before age 18 month without virologic test <ul><li>The infant is confirmed as being HIV antibody-positive </li></ul><ul><li>Diagnosis of any AIDs-indicator can be made </li></ul><ul><li>or </li></ul><ul><li>The infant is symptomatic with two or more of the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Oral candidiasis /thrush </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Severe pneumonia </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Severe sepsis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other factors supporting HIV infection in infant include: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>recent maternal death or advanced HIV disease in mother. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CD% <20% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Confirmation of the diagnosis of HIV infection should be sought as soon as possible. </li></ul></ul>
    37. 38. DIAGNOSIS - summary <ul><li>In children < 18 months HIV is diagnosed by 2 positive virological tests performed on blood samples taken on 2 separate dates. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>HIV is excluded by 2 or more negative virological tests </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>at >age 1 month, one of which is performed at age >4 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>months in a non-breastfed infant </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If BF wait 3 months after cessation of BF </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Antibody tests: 2 or more antibody tests after 18 months confirm or exclude diagnosis. </li></ul><ul><li>Presumptive severe HIV infection Child who needs ART should be made where PCR is not available and HIV diagnosis should be confirmed as soon a spossible or at age of 18 months </li></ul>

    48. 51. Exercise on clinical staging <ul><li>Case 1: </li></ul><ul><li>Tooto is 4 yrs old, presents with oral thrush, recurrent pneumonia, fever for 2 weeks, and weighs 14kgs. </li></ul><ul><li>Qtn: Whatis Toto’s WHO clinical stage? </li></ul>
    49. 52. Exercise on Clinical Staging <ul><li>ANSWER: WHO stage 3 based on the oral thrush and recurrent pneumonia. </li></ul>
    50. 53. Exercise on Clinical Staging <ul><li>Case 2: </li></ul><ul><li>Abba is 10 months and presents with severe oral thrush and sepsis requiring one month hospitalization.

    52. 55. Immunological Staging <ul><li>Differences in CD4 counts between adults and children </li></ul><ul><li>CD4 counts are normally high in healthy young children </li></ul><ul><li>Decline to adult levels by age 6 years </li></ul><ul><li>CD4% dose not change with age </li></ul>
    53. 56. Indicators of severe Immunosuppresion (WHO 2006) <2000 <2500 <3000 <4000 By total lymphocyte count <200 <350 <750 <1500 By CD4 count <15% <15% <20% <25% By CD4% 5yr+ 36-59 months 12-35 months < 12 months Severe immuno-suppression

NASCOP 2007- classification of severe immunosuppresion in children <ul><li>WHO proposed immune staging 2006 more complex than previous immune staging </li></ul><ul><li>To maintain simplicity and continuity NASCOP opted to retain three age-group classification (<18 months, 18 months-5 years and above 5 years) when making ART decisions for ART initiation in children </li></ul>
    55. 58. Immunological Staging Using CD4 percentage <250 < 500 < 1500 By CD count <15% <20% <25 % By CD4% > 5 years (60 months) CD4 % 18 months-59 months CD4 % < 18 months CD4 % Severe immunosuppression

    60. 63. Computing CD4% <ul><li>CD4% = Absolute CD4 count per mm 3 x 100 </li></ul><ul><li>Total lymphocyte count per mm 3 </li></ul><ul><li>OR = Absolute CD4 count per litre x 100 </li></ul><ul><li>Total lymphocyte count per litre </li></ul>
