Necrotizing Ulcerative Periodontitis
Sep 27, 2000

David Can you tell me how soon after infection the symptoms of NUP can be felt? Is NUP a known component of seroconversion illnesses? Many thanks

Response from Dr. Reznik

Necrotizing Ulcerative Periodontitis, or NUP is not to my knowledge anyway associated with seroconversion illness. Actually most cases of NUP I have treated over the years were in people with a CD4 count less than 100. NUP is a marker of severe immunosuppression and indicative of other systemic opportunistic events.

Take care,

DR
