AIDS

 

AIDS or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome refers to the final stage of HIV disease that causes extreme damage to the body’s immune system, as a result of an HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) infection, leaving the body exposed to several life-threatening infections and cancers. The signs and symptoms of AIDS arise from infections which do not otherwise develop in individuals with a healthy immune system, also referred to as opportunistic infections. These include chills, sweats, fever, swollen lymph glands, weight loss and weakness. Common bacteria, viruses, yeast and parasites can cause serious illnesses to people with AIDS, but those with healthy immune systems.
