Response from Dr. Henry

An HIV+ person with CMV disease has AIDS since active CMV infection (such as retinitis or colitis) is an AIDS defining condition. Many patients with by CMV antibody positive with no symptoms (that is not AIDS defining). Hopefully you are connected with a good HIV specialist who will sort out these issues and offer a beneficial treatment recommendation. KH
