HIV Returns in 3-Year-Old Girl Once Thought Cured
In 2012, The New England Journal of Medicine published an article about a child known as "Mississippi Baby" who was reportedly cured of HIV. Unfortunately, more than two years later, doctors have discovered the nearly 4-year-old now has detectable levels of the infection again, according to USA Today.
The girl is now back on anti-retroviral treatment after being taken off two years ago and will remain mostly for the duration of her life.
