What is hiv aids
Aids and hiv are not the same. The abbreviation indicating the pathogen that causes the disease aids: the human immunodeficiency virus. Hiv infection can lead, after an evolution of years in the aids disease, immunodeficiency.
The abbreviation aids stand for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (aids English: acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Hiv is spread primarily through sexual intercourse, but can also provoke the blood products infected and used syringes exchanged among drug addicts.
The person infected with hiv is called hiv positive and aids can get sick later. After days or months of being infected with hiv, there may be an acute hiv disease. The symptoms resemble those of influenza infection and seem to disappear after a few days or weeks. Then the person can be years or even decades without any discomfort.
