HIV-exposed uninfected (HEU) infants have higher infectious morbidity than HIV-unexposed uninfected (HUU) infants. We present the clinical outcomes from a pilot cohort study of 27 HEU and 28 HUU infants. In the absence of infant malnutrition or advanced maternal HIV, HEU infants experienced a 2.74 (0.85-8.78) times greater risk of hospitalization in the first year.
