Abstract

The availability of antiretroviral therapy has dramatically reduced the risk of HIV mother-to-child transmission (MTCT). However, mothers infected with multidrug resistant HIV (MDR-HIV) are at increased risk of MTCT. We report the case of a pregnant patient infected with MDR-HIV in whom MTCT was avoided with enfuvirtide use in late pregnancy and elective caesarean section.
