Caption

Ultra thin section of Human T-lymphocyte showing an aggregate of HIV particles. Note various shapes of the core. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is responsible for acquired immune deficiency syndrome, or AIDS. The virus permits opportunistic infections, malignancies, and neurologic disease. The immunologic defect is due to the effect the virus has in making T4 lymphocytes ineffective; in addition the virus can injure the cells of the nervous system. After initial infection, the patient may be an asymptomatic carrier for years. Most cases of AIDS have developed after sexual contact with an infected person. The virus is also spread via tears or saliva into blood from blood into blood, by transfusion of infected blood, contaminated hypodermic.
