Abstract

MAZANDERANI, Ahmad Haeri et al. Recommendations for the management of indeterminate HIV PCR results within South Africa's early infant diagnosis programme. South. Afr. j. HIV med. (Online) [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.1, pp.1-5. ISSN 2078-6751.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/sajhivmed.v17i1.451.

Indeterminate HIV PCR results represent missed diagnostic opportunities within South Africa's early infant diagnosis programme. These results not only delay diagnosis and appropriate management but are also a source of confusion and apprehension amongst clinicians and caregivers. We describe the extent of indeterminate HIV PCR results within South Africa's early infant diagnosis programme and provide recommendations for the management of these cases, both in terms of laboratory practice and the clinical care of the infants.
