Reactive lymhocytes in blood smear

Oct 6, 2003

Dear Dr.Holodiny,

Is it usual to have reactive lymhocytes visible in blood smear in case of HIV infection and if so, is there any time frame when they are reactive ?

Thank you very much for your answer.

With the best wishes,


Response from Dr. Holodniy

Reactive lymphocytes are a nonspecific finding and can occur with many kinds of viral infections.
