I am suffering mild neutropenia and RBC anisocytosis, is due to my recent HIV infection? if not, how can both be treated?
Response from Dr. Pierone
Anisocytosis means that under the microscope (or by indirect measurement) there is more variation in red blood cell size than normal. Neutropenia means that the number of polymorphonuclear neutrophils, the most common type of white blood cell, is low. These findings in the context of HIV infection usually reflect bone marrow effects of the virus and generally no further evaluation is necessary.
