|Low White Blood Count
Sep 8, 2002
Dear Mark - aside from HIV and Cancer are there other infections that could cause a persons White Blood Count to be below the normal range for a long period of time, thus causing their absolute CD4 to be persistently low?
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
Persistently low unlikely. There is a syndrome call idiopathic CD4 depletion syndrome that is well recognized, but not associated with HIV-1 infection.
