Abstract
Purpose: To evaluate the modes of clinical presentation and transmission of HIV, opportunistic Infection’s (OI’s), association of tuberculosis in HIV and its relation with CD4, clinical and immunological response of ART and its side effects and failure. Methods: Prospective study on children living with HIV/AIDS (CLHA) >18 months to 12 years of age admitted and attended in pediatric department. Complete history, physical examination, diagnosis age, symptoms and opportunistic infections, serial CD4 count every 6 month were taken into consideration. Results & Discussion: All CLHA were affected with OI’s after 7 years when diagnosed. 75.52% (219 patients) of newly diagnosed CLHA were symptomatic at the time of presentation. Maximum numbers of symptomatic CLHA fall in WHO clinical stage 3 and based on CD4 count maximum numbers of CLHA have either no or mild immunosuppression. So, it concludes that CLHA having severe clinical disease can have no or mild immunosuppression. Therefore, CD4 count and clinical staging should be done before starting ART. Most common presentations were fever and weight loss followed by chronic cough and oral thrush and most common sign was hepatospleenomegaly. 52 CLHA (37.58%) suffered from TB had CD4 count less than 500. So, at low CD4 counts it was an OI and high CD4 count it was more of a co-infection. 79% of CLHA were anemic and out of them 6% were severely anemic required blood transfusion. 58% CLHA of >5 years were on PCP prophylaxis. Most common opportunistic infections were bacterial pneumonia and oral candidiasis. Most common side effect of ART was abnormal liver function test. 60% patients on ART substituted as because of CLHA were also having AKT. Only one CLHA was switched to 2nd line ART because of immunological failure. During the study period 6% patients died and 11% CLHA are transferred to link centers.
