Impact of HIV Severity on Cognitive and Adaptive Functioning During Childhood and Adolescence
The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, 06/01/2012Smith R et al.
For long–term survivors, youth with HIV infection and a prior Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Class C event have higher risk for cognitive but not adaptive impairment regardless of current health status; this finding appears attributable to a previous diagnosis of encephalopathy. Early preventive therapy may be critical in reducing risk of later neurodevelopmental impairments.
