USUGA, Xiomara. Adverse effects of antiretroviral treatment in children infected by the human immunodeficiency virus. Infect. [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.2, pp.122-127. ISSN 0123-9392.

Since the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was known, more than 2.5 million infected children around the world have been diagnosed. With this knowledge also came the advent of the Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART) which has achieved a better quality of life and greater life expectancy of unweaned infected babies. However, people receiving this therapy present particular conditions that make them a population with different attention and care needs. This review addresses the most relevant clinical aspects present in HIV infected children receiving HAART.

Keywords : child; HIV; HAART.
