Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about a specific case in which HIV transmission occurred through shared tools used for a manicure.

This situation is the only documented case of a woman acquiring HIV by sharing manicure equipment. The risk of HIV transmission in this scenario was elevated because she was sharing the equipment with her cousin who is HIV positive and was not virally suppressed at the time of transmission (1,2). It is also important to note that this particular case is an extremely rare event and did not occur at a salon (3).

Regards,

AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Marie
