whats the most likley cause
Apr 25, 2006

what does it mean when a persons toenail comes completely off in regards to aids or hepc

Response from Dr. Henry

Generally loss of toenail in the setting of HIV/AIDS or hepatitis C is due to trauma or a fungal toenail infection or perhaps linked to other conditions such as vascular disease/diabetes. In most cases loss of a toe nail has no minimal relationship to HIV or hepatitis C. KH

I MUST beg to differ with you Dr. Henry on the "toxicity issue", but...!
New meds on the horizon
