|YOU'RE THE BEST GUY ON THE PLANET!! (quick question)
Jan 28, 2008
I just found another favorite "Dr.Bob quote":
Oh no! Not the mosquito question again? Twenty-six years into the HIV/AIDS pandemic and you're still wondering about mosquito transmission???? This was the original QTND (question that never dies) from a quarter of a century ago! That you are still wondering about it today means one of the following:
1. You've been in a coma for the past 26 years and just recently woke up.
2. You are an extraterrestrial who just teleported from the former planet Pluto to Earth.
3. You've been home schooled.
4. Our HIV awareness and prevention programs suck (and not in a good way).
5. All of the above.
OK Mr. or Ms. Clueless, one last time: Yes, HIV can be transmitted via mosquitoes! However, in order for this to occur you'll need to find one who is HIV positive and large enough to have unsafe sex with, OK?
HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH... i hope he didnt take that literally!!
alright, and if you feel like answering because i can't find it in the archives:
are low lymphs and low monocytes and high nuetrophils indicators of acute HIV infection? thanks dr.bob!!

Glad that one ticked your funny bone.
As for your low lymphs, low monos, high neutrophils, no, these are not indicators of acute HIV infection. The only laboratory test diagnostic of HIV infection is an HIV-specific test.
