CBSE - IX - Biology - Why Do We Fall Ill?

why AIDS is called a syndrome and not a disease?

Asked by 24th February 2013, 1:40 PM

Syndrome means a group of health problems that make up a disease. AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is not one disease but a set of diseases. Not all the people who develop AIDS suffer from the same diseases but there are certain unusual illnesses that occur very frequently in AIDS. That is why it is called a syndrome.
