AIDS develops from a breakdown of the immune system, a result of the fact that HIV infects and destroys a specialized group of white blood cells called the T-helper of T-4 cells. And with the breakdown of the immune system, severe opportunistic infections develop.

Which germ causes AIDS?

HIV, or Human Immunodeficiency virus, is a retrovirus that was first found in 1983. The virus is responsible for causing AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Once within the body, HIV infects cells of the immune system that form the body's defense system and makes them unable to fight off infections.
