Apr 26, 1999

Dear Dr, Although someone everask similar question, but don't get dirctly answer from you. Could you gine me an answer? I think it's important for someone who can not be detected by blood-based test.


Response from Dr. Holodniy

Not sure what you are asking. Can HIV be detected in lymph nodes of infected people? Absolutely.Have there been HIV infected people where all the blood tests were negative, but HIV was found in the lymph nodes. Not to my knowledge. MH

Can I put this to rest?
