spitting up blood

Jun 1, 2007

my brother has aids and is spitting up blood, what does that mean?

Response from Dr. Frascino


That means your brother needs to go see his HIV doctor right away! There are a variety of medical conditions that can cause hemoptysis (coughing up blood). I cannot diagnose the cause over the Internet. However, no matter what the cause, your brother needs to see his doctor or go to an emergency room without delay.
