Abstract

Health characteristics of neonates born to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) seropositive (n = 63) and HIV seronegative (n = 57) women were compared. No significant differences were found between the two infant groups for sociodemographic characteristics, mode of delivery, Apgar scores, gestational age, growth parameters, or immunoglobulin levels. Furthermore, no differences were detected in a subgroup of infants later confirmed to have HIV infection (class P-2). Maternal HIV infection does not appear to affect newborn health characteristics.
