Hi doctor,

Eight months back, my best friend's husband, who is 53 years old, was diagnosed with positive HIV, hepatitis B and lymph node TB. He is taking proper medicine, but gained so much weight. Now, for over a week, he has been having cold and cough during evening. He is a smoker. Is he currently in advanced stage of AIDS? Please reply. The laboratory reports showed liver and spleen enlargement, lung veins inflamed and biopsy of lymph node showed TB. His weight was 69 before eight months and now he is 87.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Extra pulmonary tuberculosis, that is TB other than of the lungs is usually an indicator of poor immunity and can be seen in advanced stages of HIV.
  • As the patient has shown signs of improvement, it is a positive thing. Any patient can upgrade their health status if their immunity is good.
  • Kindly mention the CD4 count and current medication being taken.
