Could be-: If repeated HIV testing is (-), and oral hairy leukoplakia (OHL) is present, then you don't have HIV. You have another type of viral infection . EBV is certainly a leading diagnosis- there are specific blood tests that can determine if you have an active or past infection. If the OHL is a soft diagnosis, consider other viruses such as Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Human Herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6). ...Read more

Hiv (Definition)

Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more

Can you get thrush or oral hairy leukoplakia just from common EBV or does there HAVE to be a major condition associated that causes it? I'm scared

Can you get thrush or oral hairy leukoplakia just from common EBV or does there HAVE to be a major condition associated that causes it? I'm scared

Unrelated to EBV: Oral thrush, the overgrowth of candida albicans in the mouth, results when the host immune system can’t maintain its natural defense against the fungus always present in small numbers. Normally, the immune system depends on the common oral microorganisms to keep Candida under control. Use of antibiotics, or infection with HIV can result in thrush. ...Read more

Does leukoplakia always means hiv?

No.: Some people with leukoplakia have hiv, but many patients with leukoplakia do not have hiv. Leukoplakia is not "specific for" HIV and can be seen in other clinical settings. If you are concerned that you or someone that you know might have hiv, then please get tested for hiv. Hope that this helps. ...Read more

Does having hairy leukoplakia means you have hiv?

Does having hairy leukoplakia means you have hiv?

Not always: Most cases of hairy leukoplakia are reported in HIV patients and is related to ebv infection. However, it has also been reported in patients without hiv. Patients with immune compromise (post-transplant) or autoimmune problems may develop hairy leukoplakia. ...Read more

If I have hairy leukoplakia does that mean I have hiv?

No: No, but if you truly have oral hairy leukoplakia (and not just a white coated tongue), then you should be tested for hiv. Then again, everyone should be tested for hiv. ...Read more

HIV negative....: I would say congratulations are in order. I am not sure why you are asking the question. It sounds like multiple tests tell you that you do not have hiv. If i misread your question I am sorry. It sounds like you are getting the right care and testing. ...Read more

What cause 1cm lymph nodes appear only in neck and dont go away if HIV,Mono,Hep,EBV  is negative?

Many: Many infections in the head and neck (including dental abscess) can cause lymph node enlargement. At times the enlargement may be permanent after the node was scarred. Your doctor may decide to just keep watch or remove the affected node altogether. ...Read more

Very small Lymph nodes appearing ONLY in neck for 4 months, Negative 4 HIV tests , hepB&C, mono, ebv?

Sounds normal: Having several small lymph nodes in the neck is common in many people and not necessarily abnormal. The lab tests you had are very accurate, so HIV is not a possible cause (and HIV doesn't cause lymph node enlargement in only one area like the neck) Probably not hepatitis, mono, or EBV either. If you otherwise feel well, probably nothing is wrong. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Negative Mono,HepB&C,EBV after 8 months.. Negative HIV 4th generation test after 4,5,6,7,8 and negative for all STI's .. Am I safe now?

Overtested: You have been seriously overtested for HIV. The 4th gen test was nearly conclusive after 1 month and for sure at 6 weeks. There was no need for hepatitis or EBV testing after a single heterosexual exposure. Most other STI tests also are highly reliable, so you probably are "safe now". You do not need any more tests. ...Read more

Hi sir, my neutrophils is 15 % and lymphocyte is 80 %, (bonemerrow, all, cll, iron profile, hiv, ctscan, ebv, imunophenotyping, results ok, please suggest?

Hi sir, my neutrophils is 15 % and lymphocyte is 80 %, (bonemerrow, all, cll, iron profile, hiv, ctscan, ebv, imunophenotyping, results ok, please suggest?

You have entered: Quite a bit of data here in 3 lines. The percentages are not as important as the absolute numbers (the total WBC multiplied by the % neuts and % lymphs). The fact that a detailed work-up has been undertaken confirms that you need to continue with the evaluating physician for a plan for further testing. ...Read more

Can you explain results: CMV igm, hiv, hepatitis (a, b, and c), EBV igm- about?

Unclear: Your question is very unclear. It is hard to know what you are asking, but in general when you test for some types of infection, you check both IgM and IgG type antibodies. If the IgM is high that means you are currently or very recently infected. If IgM is normal, but IgG if high that means old infection. Hope that helps. ...Read more

What are the infectious causes that may cause chronic elevated ALT 100. After ruling out. Hiv.Cmv.Ebv.Hep a.B.C and no sexual activity in 23 y o male?

Next step...: I'm glad the hepatitis family has been ruled and trust hepatitis e, which very rarely goes chronic, is not a consideration. Please be sure that hemochromatosis, autoimmune hepatitis, antitrypsin deficiency, and wilson's have also been ruled out. If they are, you may be one of those folks who gets a "non-alcoholic steatohepatitis" diagnosis -- an invitation to better health through aerobic fitness. ...Read more

Normal: A negative HIV test after 9 months is very reassuring. Having small, non tender soft lymph nodes in your neck is normal. Enlarging firm or rubber-hard lymph nodes would need additional evaluation. ...Read more
