Rarely, Acute = OI.

Dec 31, 2006

Dear Dr Holodniy.

During acute HIV-1 infection, the number of CD4+ T-cells decline, occasionally to levels that allow the development of opportunistic infections at that time

Is this true? is this possible? for ex: Is it possible to have 50 cd4 cells in Acute Infection and actually develop CMV RETINITIS??...

Looking forward for ur reply, thank you very much!!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Possible, but very unlikely.

Perplexed about labs
cd4 and virus loas
