The objective of this study was to identify the association of phase angle with physical fitness in children and adolescents infected with HIV. Sixty‐four children and adolescents infected with HIV (8‐15 years old) were tested for vertical transmission. The electrical bioimpedance was used to obtain the phase angle. Body fat (BF) and lean soft tissue mass (LSTM) were measured by x‐ray absorptiometry, and the manual grip strength was evaluated by dynamometry. The peak oxygen consumption (VO2 peak) was measured by respiratory …
