abstract

  • Persons with a CD4 count of less than 300 to 400/mm3, a progressive decline in absolute CD4 count, and a CD4:CD8 ratio of less than 1.0 should be aggressively investigated for HIV infection as well as for other causes of immune deficiency, regardless of intercurrent infections. The search for potential novel infectious causes in syndromes such as ICL/SUHIS may be most productive among such a subset of all persons with CD4 counts less than normal levels.
