1C62.Z/B20-B24 Human immunodeficiency virus disease without mention of associated disease or condition, clinical stage unspecified



Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks and destroys the body’s immune system cells, making it more difficult for the body to fight off infections and other diseases. HIV can be transmitted through contact with infected body fluids, such as blood, semen, and vaginal fluids.


HIV is usually diagnosed through a blood test, which looks for antibodies to the virus. Additional tests may be required to confirm the diagnosis.

Differential diagnosis

Different conditions can have similar symptoms to HIV, such as tuberculosis or other viral infections. These conditions must be ruled out before a diagnosis of HIV can be confirmed.


There is no cure for HIV, but it can be managed with a combination of antiretroviral medications. These medications can help to reduce the amount of virus in the body and slow down the progression of the disease.


HIV can be managed with effective treatment, but it is still a life-long condition with no cure. It is important to follow a treatment plan and seek regular medical care to maintain good health.
