Yes, theoretically: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the virus that causes progressive destruction of the immune system, leading to acquired immune deficiency syndrome (aids). As the immune system declines, a person can get one of 20+ opportunistic infections associated with aids. A person can also have aids if their CD4 or t-cell count (marker of immune function) is.
