WHAT IS HTLV-3?
Jul 7, 2005

I JUST GOT A CALL THEY SAID I HAVE HTLV-3.. IS IT AIDS?

Response from Dr. Conway

HTLV-3 is the old name of the HIV-1 virus, the virus that causes AIDS. The name change was made official in the mid-1980s and I have not heard the term "HTLV-3" used for many years There remains, however, HTLV-1 and HTLV-2 that can cause problems with the skin, the nervous system and, rarely, blood cancers. These still go by their original names and I wonder if this is what you tested for rather than #3.
