how long would my partner have had hiv with cd4 10 and having karposi sarcoma
Response from Dr. Frascino
Kaposi's sarcoma can occur anytime during HIV disease.
Generally speaking, if an HIVer's CD4 count has dropped to 10, he most likely has been infected for a considerable period of time (7-10 years). However, there is considerable variation from person to person and CD4 decline can depend on many factors, including viral strain, concurrent illness and host immune integrity.
