macular edima
Nov 2, 2007

Can macular edima be caused by HIV or is it usualy caused by the treatment of HIV?

Response from Dr. Henry

Macular edema is fairly common in the general population and has not generally been linked to HIV infection or with any HIV meds. A number of eye problems can be seen with HIV infection with infection of the retina (such as due to cytomegalovirus) the most serious (generally seen in patients with advanced AIDS).KH
