Author information

YR Gaitonde Centre for AIDS Research and Education, No. 1 Raman Street, T. Nagar, Chennai-17, India.


We report a case of an 18-month-old child with regression of attained developmental milestones as a manifestation of HIV encephalopathy. This is the first such report in Indian literature. Commencing antiretroviral therapy in this child resulted in arrest of further regression of milestones. This alerts pediatricians to be aware that early developmental delay and regression may be a presenting manifestation of HIV infection in a child.
