|white blood cells
Aug 12, 2002
I understand that an individual with HIV can have a perfectly normal CBC. However, if an abnormality were to appear in the white blood cells, would it be more likely to be a high wb count or a low wb count? Thanks.

In HIV infection the white blood cell count can either be high or low.
