Why is AIDS considered to be a ‘Syndrome’ and not a disease?


HIV AIDS is caused by HIV Virus which enters our body through body fluids such as blood and breast milk or by sexual means. HIV virus spreads to lymph nodes and it blocks our immune system. This creates a condition where our body cannot fight minor diseases like the common cold.

A person with HIV can get pneumonia from the common cold, a minor gut infection may turn into severe diarrhoea. In HIV a person will not have specific symptoms rather he will have a series of infections due hence HIV is called as a syndrome, not a disease.
