When is someone at risk for developing KS? Is it possible to develop KS when VL is undetectable and CD4s around 700? thanks

Response from Dr. Feinberg

In the 1980s & early 90s, KS was diagnosed in some people with relatively good T cell counts. The higher the T cells were, the better the response to therapy was. There are few data about KS and HIV viral load, because KS has become infrequent since the availability of both viral load testing and potent combination HIV treatment.
