    Abstract

    H1N1 influenza A virus can affect the immune system, causing lymphopenia. This might be of great concern for HIV individuals undergoing effective antireroviral therapy (cART). We report the first confirmed case of H1N1-induced AIDS and Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia in an HIV-positive woman on effective cART since 2006.
