Leukemia & Hiv...
Dec 27, 2001

Could a person be diagnosed with Leukemia, but in fact have Hiv, Could that be possible to be wrongly diagnosed???? are the two deseases similar??????????? please explain.......

Response from Dr. Frascino


In a word, Nope.

These are 2 very different diseases with very different symptoms and different diagnostic tests. If you're seeing a doctor who is having difficulty distinguishing between these 2 conditions, get out of that office as quickly as possible and don't go back until he or she graduates from medical school!

Happy Holidays.

Dr. Bob

thank you
