What can cause a false-positive HIV test?

A false positive HIV test result is extremely unlikely (around 0.01-0.02%) — significantly more so than a false negative. When it does occur, it’s typically caused by:

  • Technical issues with the test, such as specimen mix-up, misinterpretation of the instructions, or contamination of the testing reagents
  • Pregnancy
  • Some autoimmune disorders or viral infections such as Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)
  • Recent receipt of immune globulin
  • Elevated levels of gamma globulin or hematologic malignancy 

To ensure that false-positive results are not an issue, all HIV positive results need to be confirmed with additional tests to confirm the diagnosis.
