Macrophage Activation Syndrome
      11/25/10 07:06 AM

My brother found out he had HIV in July of 2010, his count was under 200, He did not know he had HIV and only recently had symptoms of the disease. He started anti-virals in August. Almost immediatly after starting the medicine he became very ill. His liver and spleen enlarged and his white blood cells basically started eating his red blood cells. Because we do not live near a research hospital the doctors here could not figure out the cause of all of this. We transferred him to a top research hospital and they did diagnose him with M.AS.. But it was too late he passed away in Oct of 2010. They are not sure what caused the MAS to start but the antivirals is highly suspect. I am writing this because I want people to look up the symptoms of this so they can get treated with different anti-virals or at least be treated earlier for MAS.
