Baby mistakenly cured by HIV

JACKSON, Miss. - New details about what's being called a medical miracle.

A baby born with HIV but cured almost by mistake.

The discovery was made at a Jackson, Mississippi, medical center, where the HIV infected mother and her baby were treated.

The child was given three different medications to aggressively fight the virus.

But one year later, they discovered the mother had stopped giving her baby the medications.

The clinic ran tests to see how much HIV was in the baby's blood and found no trace of the virus.
