Abstract

As a result of the expanding human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection epidemic and recently published recommendations for routine HIV testing with consent for all pregnant women in the United States, pediatricians are becoming increasingly involved in providing care to infants born to HIV-infected women. This article provides guidelines about counseling the parent or care giver of the infant, use of antiretroviral therapy to reduce the risk of infection in the infant, medical treatment of the HIV- exposed infant, laboratory testing to determine the infection status of the infant, laboratory monitoring of hematologic and immunologic parameters, prophylaxis for Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, and recommendations for immunizations and tuberculosis screening.
