Consistent evaluation provides a baseline of cognitive functioning and alerts the child’s caregivers and medical providers if there is a drop-off in skills. Based upon a child’s functioning, she or he may require treatment from a child psychologist to mitigate loss of functioning. Intervention may include cognitive remediation tasks such as memory work and focus on expressive language. Unfortunately, very few of the millions of children living with HIV have access to monitoring or remediation therapy.

In addition, small sample sizes and variability in findings have increased the complexity of interpreting research for clinical application. In light of these challenges, researchers have striven to identify mechanisms and pathways via which HIV affects a child’s cognitive development. Studies have linked structural abnormalities in the brain to cognitive dysfunction. In 1995, Pim Brouwers and colleagues examined brain scans of 87 children with symptomatic HIV who were previously untreated. The scans indicated a higher rate of brain abnormalities in perinatally infected children than in children who acquired the virus from blood transfusions.

Growth and physical development Pediatric HIV disease is associated with growth deficiencies in over half of untreated children. These children not only experience difficulties maintaining their weight, but also may have problems with linear growth and depletion of lean muscle. Chronically poor growth, or progressive stunting, is associated with a higher risk of mortality. The causes of growth abnormalities are multiple and include neuroendocrine abnormalities, gastrointestinal dysfunction and malabsorption, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and low levels of growth hormone; however, study results have been varied and therefore these linkages are not conclusive and sometimes are not considered to be causal.
