Does leukoplakia always means hiv?

In brief: 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.
