Is Syphilis R190 or R90 an OI?
Mar 13, 2001

Is syphilis R90 or R190 an AIDS defining opportunistic infection?

Thank you.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I don't know what the letter/number codes you've given are-- perhaps they have something to do with diagnosis codes for insurance purposes?-- at any rate, syphilis is syphilis but it is not an AIDS-associated OI.

Eustachian Tube Dysfunction?
early OI's
