why is AIDS considered as a syndrome and not a disease?
AIDS is a syndrome because it does not shoes any symptom it directly takes actions .we do not feel that we are having aids.but before occurance of disease there are some symptoms.
may this help u...
plz thumbs up....
When AIDS takes place, it cannot harm the body much by itself alone. All it does is to immensely weaken the body 's immune system. This leads to other diseases being more deadly. So, as you see, it itself is just a syndrome, not a disease.
hey pritush best of luck for the science exam and do all the best.
AIDS causing virus—HIV that comes into the body via, the sexual organs or blood transfusion will through spread all over the body lymph nodes . The virus damages the immune system of the body and due to this the body can no longer fight off many minor infections. Instead, every small disease like cold can become severe pneumonia or minor gut infection can become severe diarrhoea with blood loss. The effect of disease becomes very severe and complex at times killing the person suffering from AIDS. Hence, there is no specific disease symptoms for AIDS but it results in a complex diseases and symptoms. Therefore, it is known as a syndrome.
so, aids considered as syndrome and nt a diease
aids is a mixture of all the diseases its basically for lack of immunity

The syndrome label that is applied to the later stages of HIV infection came about in the early years of the HIV epidemic when scientists were still trying to identify the cause. The name has persisted, despite the fact that we now know the cause of AIDS. The word syndrome is used when there is a group of symptoms that occur together but there is no established cause. In the case of HIV, we know the cause. Additionally, the syndrome label applies when symptoms do not produce changes in anatomy and treatment involves only dealing with symptoms, rather than the underlying cause. With HIV, this is still true. We deal with HIV symptomatically--if a person develops an infection, we treat the infection. However, we do not have a treatment for the cause--the HIV virus.
