Re: HIV/AIDS question [HAPP-L]

I would have to go back and look at the report in NEJM but as I
remember, they cleared the virus from their systems after birth.

Students have asked me about, and I remember hearing about, newborns
test "HIV positive" after birth, but then test "negative" at around age
months.  Am I dreaming?  Was this report artifactual, or are there
where only antibodies cross the placenta, and the child doesn't acquire
virus itself?
