Possible high t-cells?
May 11, 1999
Hi Dr. Holodniy,
Thanks for all the great work you anf your collegues do here! I have a question that I haven't been able to really get any kind of answer to. Do you know what causes 'coated tongue'(overgrowth of papilae) in HIV + people? This makes the tongue have a constant white appearance. I heard that it may be related to a high t-cells, but that didn't make sense to me. I would appreciate it if you could offer any insight.
Response from Dr. Hellerstein
Sorry, don't have an answer to that one. mh
