Answer

Growth failure, failure to thrive, or wasting in a child may indicate HIV infection if other common metabolic and endocrine disorders do not appear to be the etiologies. Growth failure, failure to thrive, or wasting in a patient with HIV infection may signify disease progression or underlying malnutrition.
