In brief: Anytime
Perinatal transmission of HIV can cause any number of abnormal findings starting from birth including hepatosplenomegaly (enlarged liver and spleen), thrombocytopenia (low platelets), opportunistic infections, and failure to thrive (poor growth).
Some infants may appear well for months, but have HIV infection. http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/perinatal/resources/factsheets/perinatal.htm.
