ARS with normal white blood cell counts?
Aug 6, 2001

Dear Doctor,

It is so widespread that HIV is associated with low white blood cells and low lymphocyte counts. Is is possible to present with high total white blood count and normal lymphocytes during ARS? If so, is this a normal occurence or is it very rare?

Thanks a bunch for helping me better understand..

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I have never seen or read of such a case, and it would make little sense given what we know about how HIV infection occurs.
