Response from Dr. Holodniy
Most people who are found to have oral hairy leukoplakia (OHL) have CD4 counts between 200-500. So where your CD4 count is about in the range. Although it can be a marker of immune system dysfunction, that is usually in people who are not on HIV meds and have detectable HIV viral loads. OHL is usually not harmful. Because your HIV viral load is undetectable and your CD4 count is in the normal range, I would not be concerned.
