non-HIV MAC patient

Nov 19, 2005

what is the ratio between MAC infected patients with and without AIDS? is it rare to have MAC and not be infected with AIDS?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

No it is not rare to have MAC infection without HIV infection. It usually manifests itself as a lung infection in people without HIV infection and as a blood stream infection which can infect other organs in HIV infected people.
