HIV-2 infections: a lesson in diagnostic test selection in Egypt
AbstractThe first HIV-2 infection in an Egyptian national is documented in this report. Infection with HIV-2 was recognized only after a HIV-1 specific assay yielded negative results in an individual previously identified as being HIV-seropositive by a HIV-1/HIV-2 assay. This emphasizes the importance of using assays capable of detecting both HIV-1 and HIV-2 for testing blood supplies and diagnosis of HIV infections in regions where the prevalence of HIV-2 infections is extremely low
