A cohort of 410 young HIV-infected children was prospectively investigated for seasonal and A(H1N1p)2009 influenza virus illness during 2009. The incidence of confirmed illness due to seasonal influenza was 3-fold greater than A(H1N1p)2009 (0.7 vs. 0.2 per 100 child-weeks, respectively; P = 0.0001), and the clinical presentations were similar. Illnesses due to seasonal and A(H1N1p)2009 influenza were self-limiting without neuraminidase inhibitor therapy.
