How soon after HIV infection can thrush appear?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Thrush does not usually occur until the CD4 cell count is about 350 or lower. On average, it takes about 5 years after infection to reach this point; that's a rough estimate, but it's not possible to give a more precise timeframe.
