Yes.: The main symptoms of HIV / aids are related to immune system suppression. There are other diseases that can cause immune suppression, some of these include hematologic malignancies (leukemias), autoimmune disease (lupus, etc...), and inherited immunodeficiency syndromes. Hope that this helps.
