Please Dr.

Oct 18, 2001

Would having an IgA deficiency, or IgA with IgG2 subclass deficiency result in false negative hiv testing. I was tested 98, 2000, 2001, in 2000 I was hospitalized with reccurrent strep, tested then, then tested 2001 because of reccurrent colds. Thank you, please respond.

Response from Dr. Young

IgA deficiency nor IgG subclass deficiency should not result in false negative HIV testing.
