Transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection occurs from transfusion of blood and blood products, unprotected sexual contacts, sharing of intravenous syringes and occupational hazards. Transmission from domestic contacts is extremely rare. Here we report a case of transmission of the infection from an infected child to her mother in the absence of any known risk factor.
