Consistently high CD4 and undetectable Viral Load

May 8, 2011

My adopted daughter has had consistent high CD4 counts (over 30% and now 43%) and undetectable viral loads for the past 4 years (she is 5 and has been on ARV's from about 8 months). Is it at all possible that she is not HIV +?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would find that exceedingly unlikely, given that she would have been placed on HIV meds for 4 years without the diagnosis being confirmed prior to that.

CD4 % question
better percentage cd 4 or count of cd 4
