Non-immune thrombocytopenia responsive to antiretroviral therapy and HIV-2 infection.


Torres, J R; Torres-Viera, M A; Schupbach, J; Rangel, H R; Pujol, F H (2007). Non-immune thrombocytopenia responsive to antiretroviral therapy and HIV-2 infection. Journal of Infection, 54(1):e21-e24.

Abstract

HIV-2 infection was documented for the first time in Venezuela, in a heterosexual couple. Two identical subtype A viral strains exhibiting multiple resistance mutations to antiretroviral drugs were identified. One of the patients suffered from progressive non-immune thrombocytopenia and extranodal NK/T-cell type lymphoma, an association not previously described for HIV-2. His hematological condition promptly improved after onset of an effective antiretroviral therapy.
