A 9 year old boy was infected with the AIDS virus after receiving contaminated blood in a transfusion while in hospital undergoing surgery to fix his cleft palate. He later developed pneumonia, which subsequently lead to a blood test and identification of his positive HIV status. His parents attempt to hold the hospital and blood bank responsible for the infection has not been supported by the judicial system as the defendants argued that the child could have been infected by any source at earlier stages in his life.
