AIDS stands for Acquired immune deficiency syndrome is a syndrome caused by a virus called HIV(human immunodeficiency virus). The disease affects the immune system, making people much more vulnerable to infections and diseases.

This virus that attacks cells in the immune system, which is our body’s natural defence against illness. The virus destroys a type of white blood cell in the immune system called a T-helper cell, and makes copies of itself inside these cells. T-helper cells are also referred to as CD4 cells.

If HIV is left untreated, it may take up to 10 or 15 years for the immune system to be so severely damaged that it can no longer defend itself at all. However, the rate at which HIV progresses varies depending on age, general health and background.

AIDS full form is Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. AIDS is a disease of human immune system caused by the infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The initial symptoms of this disease may be a brief period of influenza-like illness. AIDS is a disease which may progress for a long period of time without any symptoms. As the infection progresses, it interferes more and more with the immune system and makes the infected person too weak and thus susceptible to common infections like Tuberculosis, tumors, asthma, etc.

The HIV virus attacks on the T-cells in the immune system and makes your body so weak that it can be easily affected by bacteria, virus and fungi. In starting weeks, it can show symptoms like a headache, fever, sore joints and muscles, etc. When the infection spreads, the human immune system becomes weaker and loses its ability to fight the normal infections, diseases and cancers. AIDS is the extreme condition of this infection, i.e. a person infected with HIV will progress to AIDS, if not treated properly.
