Sinusitis and CD4

Jul 9, 2005

Dear Doctor:

I already knew that a viric infection can decrease CD4's total count, but can a hard sinusitis decrease them from 520 to 384, or a 3% being also indetectable?

Thanks in advance

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Although not studied well, a significant bacterial or viral sinusitis could indeed result in a CD4 decline like that.

How do I know if it's time to change meds?
Viral load progression
